Re: Sustainable Transport and the East Herts draft District

re: Buzz's suggestions. This all frees up some of the pinch points, but all you'll end up with is traffic going faster through the town. And then if it's faster, more people will then use the town centre as a cut through, and then it'll eventually clog up again. The easiest thing to do is to remove ...

Re: Sustainable Transport and the East Herts draft District

I'd say Hertford is at Gridlock. Regulary now on Saturdays the town is at a standstill. For example, I cycled to town on Saturday at about 11am. In the time it took me to pick up some new brake pads from Highway Cycles and then go down to Sainsbury's to do a small shop of about £20 worth of basics, ...

Re: sustainable transport and the East Herts draft District

Agreed. Hertford is at gridlock now. Without any concrete sustainable transport solution, the town will just implode under its own particulate matter. I'll be adding my comments to the plan.

Re: Solicitor for conveyancing

We used Breeze & Wyles when we last moved 5 years ago. Used to be on Fore St. but since moved to Stag House. They did what we asked them to without any drama.

Quite. I take it all back.
However, from what I saw from my bike it's not the lights causing the problem, but people's interpretation of what the colour red means.

Re: Old Cross 5-way Traffic Lights

Usually with these things, they book more time than they actually need.

In reality they'll probably just do roadworks for something like three days starting anywhere in the period 28th Feb to 11th April.

I may be wrong.

Re: Proposed parking fee changes at council car parks.

Terrible idea The 30 minutes free parking mean window shopping and impulse buys have been wiped out. People want to dash to the one shop and dash back again. And although I agree with charging at night in principle, it needs to be backed up with parking enforcement too. Too many cars already park il...

Re: Clinton Cards

So a restaurant with a deli counter.

According to the design and access statement, something like a Carluccio's or a Loch Fyne.

Re: Pot Holes Appearing Everywhere !

Ahhh, fellow cyclists. I feel your pain. I've pretty much learnt where they all are now on my daily commute. But I agree, making that split decision as to whether to plough into a pothole or swerve into the path of an overtaking car isn't a situation that we should be put in. You can report potholes...
