Let me guess, taxi wanker.

Far from it, nice to see the lycra brigade stick together.  Mrs Maltby should be asking, how much taxpayers money the department of infrastructure has spent on building showers in government building  for people who cycle to work, If they charge for push bike parking. There a revenue steam treasury never thought of, might in time pay for the shower facilities.

All work places should have showers like they have toilets, basic hygiene unless you are against that, people have always walked or cycled to work, if you are suggesting that if we ban all active travel it would make the roads better then you are a complete idiot, it would just increase the number of cars, and create more problems, requiring more money spent on roads, more pollution and more angry tosspot car drivers who will find some other group to blame for their perceived problems, and here you are getting frothy mouthed about people having better hygiene as if thats the problem.

We get the picture lardy, you avoid all forms of exercise apart from angrily bashing your keys to complain about people exercising

In 1912 or thereabouts many towns had  tram systems that operated in the middle of the road.It wasn’t ideal then and worse as traffic density increased and motor vehicles became more commonplace.

It seems extraordinary, then to ignore the obvious that a tramway in the middle of any 21st  century road presents hazards.

Having decided to retain the tramway and  totally rebuild the promenade it is difficult to understand why the opportunity to relocate the  tramway to somewhere safer and more convenient - )either side or on the prom but any where other than the middle of a busy road)  was not taken.

If  and when the trams run again it would seem we have managed to retain all the disadvantages of an Edwardian traffic system and a 21 st century one by unimaginatively cobbling the two together.

 

100%. Can't understand the madness of not putting the trams on the sea side. It would be so much nicer on the trams with just the view over the beach and walkway, instead of being stuck in traffic. And the section where the trams actually cross over the traffic at Broadway, horse first? The whole design is so wrong.

They’ve been crossing over the traffic for around 150 years at the other end.
