Why is pedestrian/bike access to the Villiers Road site restricted? Isn’t this counter-productive?

Safety considerations are the main issue, but the council is currently (early 2018) considering various options to facilitate pedestrian and cycle access including; a “bring site” at the entrance once the redeveopment works are complete; escorted access outside Waster Transfer Station opening hours when the majority of large vehicle and equipment movements take place; physical changes such as segregated pedestrian walkways to allow safe access. 

Due to the improvements in domestic recycling the council anticipates that there will be less demand for public access.
