you will have to move court to direct your neighbor to permit you to use  said road . you should point out  that for last 40 years you had uninterrupted access to said road . court will grant you an injunction restraining your neighbor from obstructing your right to use said road for access to your property

The street is common, hence right to enjoy the street is also common. It is a street constructed by government and not your neighbour. He cannot emasculate your right to have an uninterrupted access to street. 

Issue a lawyer's notice to him to warn him of legal action if he does not allow you to use the street. Move to court and file a case for injunction if he does not meet the demand raised in legal notice.

You have been told that he cannot stop you. As and when you file the case you will mention therein that it is a public road. For further legal advice consult a lawyer by paying his consultancy fee.
