Am I a cycle-mad moron?

Worcester City Council is proposing to allow cycling in the pedestrianised area of the city centre. I think this is a sensible idea, although I understand that others disagree. The majority of cyclists understand the need to cycle differently depending on the...

Decades of road building hasn’t solved congestion

Building 4,000 miles more won’t address the #climateemergency & means less cash for public transport, cycling & walking

Instead let’s radically change how we work, travel & think about our towns & cities https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/science-environment-53353258?__twitter_impression=true

Scandalous expenditure. Treasury reports 10 billion spent on private contracts for test and trace system that still doesn’t work. most of the work is being done by public sector public health teams. 15 billion on PPE. All These contracts must be published. @IndependentSage

The UK’s first city bicycle mayor believes the coronavirus pandemic has created a “golden opportunity” for cycling to become a bigger part of the nation’s commuting culture. @adamtranter is bicycle mayor for #Coventry

Big and uneven changes in land use in the UK over the last 30 years.

These changes can also have major effects on rain runoff causing increased flooding and diffuse pollution in some places.

Residents' Parking Scheme update:
A quick update on the plans for the parking scheme covering the Arboretum and up to St. George's Lane North. The detailed plans, showing where every single sign, line marking, etc. will be placed has been sent to the contractors Ringway. They have costed the scheme for the county council. Due to the cost I will be using a combination of my councillor highways maintenance budget and divisional fund to contribute to the cost.
Once that is signed off by the county council, then Ringway will order the signs and programme the work into their schedule. I don't yet have a start date for the implementation of the scheme, but will let people know as soon as I have a confirmed date. The work is expected to take 3 weeks, starting at one end of the scheme and working towards the other end.
Once we get near to this final stage, residents will be able to order parking permits, visitor permits and special permits for carers. Again, I will let people know when and how they can apply.
Any questions, let me know.
