Market, College Approach.
Allow access to the Cutty Sark Gardens car park and the tourist
office/Naval college still, but have those two access roads landscaped
to be 'naked roads' something along the lines of Lower Ground on the
South Bank - ie. no kerbs or pedestrian barriers, and also a 10mph speed

still access for deliveries to the market and to the pubs/restaurants
but no-one is tempted to use the road as a shortcut.
