In August 2000 some councillors were wanting to revert back to the previous traffic scheme, while work was still on-going on the new one-way system.

As work was being carried out on the new traffic system, some business owners had noticed a reduction in trade, which they believed came as a direct result of the traffic situation.

Some members of the council suggested that the old traffic system should be brought back to try and help the business owners bring back some custom.

At a council meeting the elected representatives decided that they should let the one-way system settle in before they made any quick decisions. It was decided there would be a review of the situation after a period of months.
