not. far. enough.
ban people...problem solved
Bath is proposing to charge high emission vehicles £100 a day to drive
around the city.
That should persuade a few more snobs to join the plebs on the park and ride
Last time we went to Bath - last year - we used the park and ride. It
was excellent, and a damned sight easier than trying to drive in and
find somewhere to park. Bath is a wonderful town, but certainly not one
built for today's level of traffic.
It doesn't help that Bath is not usefully bypassed for medium-range
journeys. There's only the M4, and that's only any use for people
wanting to get to Bristol and South Wales or round onto the M5. Traffic
from the south and south-east of Bath has little choice but to traverse
the central area.
I wonder whether any similarly historic town or city in Europe sits so
four-square across so many important regional routes?
