Sir - I was astonished to hear the Conservative county councillor in charge of Abingdon's traffic, Ian Hudspeth, quoted as saying that only "minor tweaks" would be needed to solve the town's traffic problems.

A full review of the new traffic system should have been done at least a year ago by which time the problems were already obvious. 'Implement, monitor and review' was a key element of the original proposals which the county council has clearly failed to follow through.

But it is also clearly the case that until the county council applies itself to the longer-term measures which are needed - such as upgrading the Lodge Hill interchange and making progress on a second river crossing - no amount of 'tweaking' is going to solve the problem.
