SIR – I would like to draw attention to the Southern link road. The prodigious speeds attained by some continue as they remain unchecked with no apparent enforcement.

For many, the road has become a section of the M5 motorway. 

Perhaps at the very least the pedestrian/cycleway should include a continuous crash barrier for protection should the worst occur.

Or do we have to wait for an incident before this becomes important?
