Bottlenecks occur at the roundabout at Jonson Street and, on market days, at the roundabout at Butler Street.
The largest volume of traffic enters Byron from Ewingsdale Road.
The greatest hold-up to the traffic flow is the northbound traffic on Jonson Street at the roundabout.
If Jonson Street became one way southbound and Fletcher Street one way northbound, with Bay Street one way westbound, and if there were a connection over the railway between Jonson and Butler Streets, much of the congestion entering Byron along Ewingsdale Road would disappear.
This would be a low-cost solution for now, while in the longer term a bypass would need to be added.
I hope that Byron Shire Council will look into this low-cost solution.
