All in it together
S ELDER-DICKER (MRS) (Your Say, September 19) has repeated her previous statement: "There is only one route into Plymouth City Centre from Plymstock.
There are currently three routes for Plympton traffic."
I would point out that there is only one route for Plympton traffic until the River Plym is crossed at Marsh Mills, which is pretty similar to Plymstock's situation with Laira Bridge.
Plympton traffic could travel via Saltram/Stag Lodge and add to the lady's problem, but I don't think many do that if trying to get to the city centre.

What the lady perceives as Plympton traffic in the Gdynia Way area is made up of traffic from the A38 Exeter direction, Plympton, A38 from West Plymouth and rat run traffic that comes via Estover/Marsh Mills from Roborough.
I fully sympathise with all Plymstock traffic suffering from the roadworks, but I don't think Plympton traffic has much to do with the problem.
What I would say is we noticed with the previous roadworks, and again now, substantial congestion increase in the Plympton Cot Hill area caused by traffic en route to Plymstock in an attempt to avoid Laira Bridge. We are all in this together.
