This is Regent St. It should be made a one way st. Hourly, cars struggle to pass each other. Emergency vehicles would be hampered. Wing mirrors get smashed off on a regular basis.. Drivers get frustrated when aggressive and selfish drivers will try and play chicken. Regent St. Should be made into a one-way street to avoid all of the above

Thank you for contacting Northamptonshire Highways with regard to your request for Regent Street, Kettering to be made a one way street. One way systems can have certain benefits but these are often outweighed by the draw backs. The implication on the surrounding road network would have to be considered as traffic may well be displaced onto neighbouring routes. Whist it may alleviate the issues on a particular route they generally just push the issue onto other, even more unsuitable roads. These systems also usually lead to an increase in the speed of traffic as there is no opposing traffic flow to slow oncoming vehicles, whist the existing arrangement creates its own issues it keeps traffic speeds low along this narrow road. These schemes require a considerable amount of signing, much of it illuminated, and a comprehensive public consultation exercise to be undertaken and are very expensive to implement. They are often very controversial as it makes access to properties, for many residents, far more tortuous than with the existing arrangement and they are often liable to be abuse especially at night. There are therefore currently no proposals or funding to introduce a one way system in Regent Street. It would also be helpful if any new issues are raised as a separate report, rather than linked to an existing report - many thanks
