Cllr Chung called for calming measures to be brought on to the street that operates more like a “dual-carriageway” than an inner-city road.
She said: “We need better calming measures along that road. It is almost an urban highway with so many people commuting along it. I think we need measures to humanise it to stop it from acting as a dual-carriageway.
