Do those who write about new cycle lanes, parking restrictions and so on causing road congestion and increased pollution, actually think the council is not aware of this.

Of course they are, because that is the plan.

They don't care about congestion as long as they can continue their anti road agenda and tick "safety" and "environment" boxes.

Traffic lights that are always red, pavements widened, roads narrowed, parking capacity reduced - charges increased, road "improvements" that aren't, buses six in a row because new islands and junction designs prevent passing them.

And don't worry about pollution, we'll just blame the cruise liners.

All to force us to walk or cycle.

And even if we do cycle (in the British winter?) don't use the cycle lanes - nobody else does.

Don't complain, just drive to a friendlier town or out of town retail park or attraction.
