TRADERS in Welshpool are being urged to attend mo- nthly meetings in a bid to get the town’s one-way system changed or scrapped.
Councillor Steve Kaye, of Welshpool Business Forum, said traders needed to make their voices heard after more than 25 met at the town hall on Monday to discus the town’s traffic problems.
Mr Kaye, a builder and joiner, said many traders wanted the one-way system scrapped.
He said: “The meeting on Monday night was a chance for traders to air their views about the one-way system and say what they wanted to be done to make changes.
“Many believe the whole system needs to be scrapped and go back to the way it was before. The forum will continue to put the case forward to Powys County Council.
“County councillor David Jones was at the meeting, he is the man that has been tasked by the county authority to lead a working party looking at the effect of the one-way system on the town. He listened to everyone’s views and said he would report the findings back.”
Mr Kaye said the town had been inundated with complaints since the system opened in February 2011.
The forum meets every third Monday of the month at the town hall at 7pm.
