Road to Nowhere

June 22nd, 2012

It’s hard to imagine there being a more thorough review of the Cogges Link Road. Here is Inspector Stephen Roscoe’s report. Section 7 gives the reasoning behind his recommendation that the Side Roads Order and Compulsory Purchase Order required to implement the CLR be “not confirmed”.

Paragraph 7.43 says…

The Council has drawn my attention to the fact that the January 2011 White Paper emphasises that transport is crucial to economic growth. The White Paper however also records that people who travel to shop on foot, by cycle or by public transport spend as much, if not more, than those using the car, and transport is therefore not the only factor seen as important to growth.

Putting aside the confusing use of the word transport, this comment highlights a lack of balance in how the County prioritises its transport schemes.

A Potter to the Pottery

June 15th, 2012

After much deliberation, tomorrow’s Bike Week ride to Aston Pottery is going ahead, depending on the weather tomorrow.

The start is at Church Green, 10am. There’s a short, boggy off-road section which will be OK for MTBs. For the others a separate on road route will be used to avoid it, but that’s not a nice option for children.

It’s an easy ride, 8 miles there, tea and cake, 8 miles back.
