There's a new family of Cygnets in Exhibition Park as well, next to Wylam Brewery.

Reads very much  like another Gate (which for those from outside the area is a horrid chrome and glass mall which h nobody likes). Keep Stack it's really done well, feels organic and brought life to a dead area.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Also just read they're not bringing in tolls for the Tyne Bridge etc. But in the Tyne Bridge's case they're putting in a bus lane and making it one lane. How thick are they.

What sort of comment is that. The pollution round that area is down the council ineptitude when it comes to traffic management.

Well, obliviously the answer to the problem of "too much pollution from cars" is to force people to drive further and create more traffic jams  :idiot2:

How dare you drive into Newcastle. Don't you know you should be using public transport that more than likely won't turn up. That more than likely will break down. That more than likely will take longer and cost more than driving yourself. You're the problem Ian. Not the p*ss poor traffic lights or bus and cycle lanes that stand empty and funnel everyone else into one lane.

The point of bus lanes is to be empty, and cycle lanes and pedestrianisation have to happen if we are to use cars less in the future. Obviously the public transport should be improved stepwise with the traffic measures, but overall they're things that need to be done to allow for less cars and more public transport.

It's f***ing daft and incredibly wasteful that you see thousands of cars every morning stuck in rush hour traffic, each with zero passengers.

Here's an idea as well, stop building more offices and workspaces inside the city centre.

Have they not noticed that there's a motorway at the end of the Tyne Bridge? Not everyone who goes over it is going into the city centre and it's ridiculous to treat the route as if they are.

Speaking of which, there's a lack of traffic lights on that motorway until you get to Cowgate (and then for some reason there's about 5 sets on one road no longer than 500 meters apart). There's too much free flowing traffic. Council could do with adding a few traffic lights and maybe a new round about along the way. Could start with adding a new set of lights at the Newcastle end of the Tyne Bridge. That'll stop congestion for sure.

Canny few people at the Climate Strike thing at the Civic Centre. The capo's leading the crowd are dire though. No pyro either.

London one is pretty big, taking a break and going back for the big speeches soon. The student leaders are pretty bad as here as well, they’re trying though.

You know what makes it worse? The bus lane is going to be on the lane with a height restriction, so double decker buses can’t use it. Also buses, HGV’s, and taxis will still be tolled.

Why would they toll busses?
