A fair in Cambridge has prompted calls for a traffic-free main road in the town centre.
Cambridge News reported that traders and councillors have backed the pedestrianisation of Mill Road for special occasions. There has been a proposal to introduce retractable security bollards
so that the road could still be used by vehicles.
The annual Winter Fair within Cambridge meant that thousands could enjoy the town without the problem of traffic continually running through it.
Cllr Kilian Bourke, who represents Romsey on the county council, said: "Many of the people I spoke to at the Winter Fair commented on how great it was that Mill Road was closed and effectively pedestrianised. This gave the street a real market atmosphere that people enjoyed, especially families with young children."
A new report by retail expert Mary Portas has said that Britain could re-invigorate its High Street by having a designated market day every week which could boost revenue in Britain.
