HOPES Hind Street could become a two-way road to allay 'Sainsbury's traffic gridlock' have not been ruled out following a meeting last week.

Highways chiefs and planning bosses joined Ottery councillors and police on a town-centre site visit.

The Herald revealed last week how calls were made for the measure amid

fears gridlock will become a regular Ottery feature.

After talks, mayor Glyn Dobson said: "It was a positive meeting. It was acknowledged there are problems there (Hind Street).

"It's not dead in the water but certainly not approved by any means.

"This needs to happen."

Councillor Roger Giles also championed the move. "Everyone agreed there was a particular problem," he said, "There is still hope, there is a lot more work to be done. We're anxious to push on and do everything we can.
