With great respect to the residents of Rectory Lane, Stevenage and the needs of road users, I wish to make the following comments and suggestions:-

1) It should be accepted Rectory Lane should be used for the benefit of all road users, not just just for the exclusive needs of residents.

2) It is a fact the road, especially on bends and other places is narrow and difficult to negotiate for vehicles travelling in opposite directions.

3) I therefore suggest the flow of traffic entering Rectory Lane should be restricted or controlled so that traffic is allowed to travel in one direction only.

Ideally, this should be arranged with a traffic light system to allow traffic outflowing am and inflowing pm.

4) Finally, the road is in a disgraceful state of disrepair. It is badly rutted and pot holed, like a third world cart track and desparately needs completely resurfacing.
