It's a good thing the council narrowed the pavement here on Lower Ashley Road, because it's now the perfect width for Renault WP05BZC to pause while father and son pick up a takeaway. It's so heartwarming to see parking skills being passed on to the next generation. When this boy grows up, he will most likely be similarly resourceful in his parking pursuits. Furthermore, by blocking the pavement entirely, they will ensure that no bicycles will cycle along it, endangering pedestrians.
The excitement of St. Pauls is now enhanced by being able to walk out directly into the traffic lane which replaced the previously wide pavement and cycle lane. Who cares about safety or access when we have to get all those single occupant vehicles to Cabot Circus so that they can buy really necessary things to put in their cars? Certainly not Colin Knight, head of Bristol Transport Operations who can be thanked personally for this forward thinking planning at colin.knight at bristol.gov.uk.
Perhaps we should rename "Cycling City"- "Driving Your Car with the Bike on the Back to the Cycle Path City"
