THE traffic and environment in St Neots town centre have returned to the 1960s when all traffic passed through the town and caused major problems.
Huntingdon has left us behind with its pedestrians-only High St and Market Square while St Ives has banned all though traffic but provided parking at each side of the town.
St Neots could catch up with its neighbours by banning through traffic in the High St and Market Square and providing additional parking west of the bridge and using the auction market field for seven-day parking not one-day as at present parking.
The argument of the bypass being too far to reach the other side of the town does not hold up, as St Ives bypass is a greater distance and works.

St Neots riverside and Market Square are great assets as can be seen at weekends by the numbers of visitors from far and wide parking on the riverside enjoying the facilities.
