Re: Key smartcard at Hertford North

Has anyone else been having problems with their Key smartcard at Hertford North? Last week mine was refused one evening and hasn't worked at the barriers since then.

Re: EHDC District Plan - Vote on adoption 11-Sept

jesus wept - solve traffic problem with by-pass; then cause it again by halving capacity (bus lane) The idea is that a bypass would remove traffic from Gascoyne Way and allow the spare capacity to be used for a rapid transit system going east/west across the county.
