WELL done to Councillor John Dixon for trying to explain the new Clifton Street traffic system (December 15), but at the risk of labouring the point I raised a few of weeks ago, about Leckwith Road since the "alterations", would it be too much to ask one of the Canton councillors or someone from the council's road planning department to explain how they have "improved" the system that worked without problem for nigh on 20 years, and is now basically gridlocked from Llandaff Road (Penhill end) to Jubilee Park in the evenings?
