@basil Good news. I’ve been cycling more since lockdown. Just home local councils implement some of it before people go back their old habits.

@jamie they have done some of the temporary stuff on Tyneside. There are some angry people on Facebook, let me tell you.


but here's a telling post.

After yesterday (when it began) there were tailbacks because of how drastically the council had closed lanes and redirected traffic.

A facebook post on the local group asking if the should take the motorway bypass.

So the A1 clips the south of gateshead and the north of newcastle.

Yet everyday people drive right through the middle of both when they could just as well go around. Probably takes the same time given traffic lights etc.

@jamie took a lot of self control to reply to the post telling people that they should always take the bypass if they aren't actually going to the towns they are driving through.
