Normans Transport Policy

Interesting that a railing topped with spikes has appeared to block off the only standing area at the East Street bus stop. Now bus passengers have to wait on a narrow pavement next to a very busy road. Apparently the owners don't like the proletariat standing too close to their plush offices (a building once in public ownership). Now who do you think rents space in that very building? Mmmmm.

The only person responsible for passengers being forced to wait on a narrow pavement in all conditions is Martin Elliott. It was he who hijacked the bus station and tried to weasel his way out of providing a decent waiting area and bus stop. ESCC and LDC were, it appears, doing very little to make him follow the Local Plan. Norman Baker is, to my knowledge the only person who has sought an end to this farce. The railings merely fence off private land and prevent the use of the basement area as a public lavatory.

I haven't seen what the railings look like or who and why they were put up, but I do know that the land outside the offices are privately owned by an individual who uses it to park their car. I was told that someone tried to buy the land outside of the offices, but the owner has refused.

But hasn't Norman also welcomed the idea of M&S in the bus station? Where will the buses stop, in the lingerie section?
