Re: Enterprise Car Rental Closing

It's one of those things that you understand but also makes no sense. Traffic from the Caxton industrial estate out of town and especially to the A10 shouldn't be going via the Bluecoats roundabout. But at the same time, the industrial estate shouldn't be a rat run for everybody else that just avoid...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

Actually, IMHO, there are three main drivers behind the bypass (pardon the pun) - congestion, pollution and the need to make space for the Mass Rapid Transit system. I imagine the biggest driver is congestion. And specifically dealing with it to support all the new housing and cars in the EHDC Dist...

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

It was a journalist chappie. He pointed out that a major driver for dealing with Gascoyne way is pollution. And the plan is supposed to run till 2033.

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

Too many thoughts about all this, this morning. Mainly, they should stop chasing unicorns around SciFi mass transport systems, unfunded bypasses and so on.

Bircherley Green Car Park closing 2-Jan-2019

https://twitter.com/DiscHertford/status/1075480810956963840 Presumably for good. Until the development is complete and the new car parking area is opened.
