IN reply to your correspondent of July 13, things can only get worse for traffic congestion in Evesham.

With two developments in Hampton, the new estate in Cheltenham Road (and a further 450 if plans are passed), without considering other parts of the town and surrounding villages.

There has been a massive increase in road traffic in the last few years.

You only have to look at Stratford-upon-Avon to see the gridlock that has occurred due to over development.

This will be our future unless the council looks sensibly at the overall plan for roads in the town.
