Local Issues and Matters / Re: York Road.

See the new style of pedestrianised roundabout.


...and where exactly are the roundabouts on York road?

Yawn more irrelevant drivel from our resident fence sitter..

When was the last time you drove in Holland?

I was driving around Rotterdam recently- roads much better than UK and traffic flow calm and controlled.

Believe it or not there is a WORLD out there should you choose to move off your fence......and no Youtube is not reality.

You really need to get out more.....then again that probably involves being on a bus with a pass.

All research on pedestrianisation done pre-pandemic.
So pointless you doing the research really, wasn't it?
No. I gave the facts but unfortunately cannot make the horse drink.
However I do know which way the wind is blowing.

I checked the research done on Pedestrianisation. It would appear that, contrary to popular belief, when an area is made traffic-free footfall either stays the same or increases. The overwhelming majority of studies done worldwide agree on this point.

.....Probably because the area around the Heugh is a residential area and has historic attractions as opposed to Candy Floss and noisy food venues.

Seaham was a run down sxxxhole mining town with a small harbour that has reinvented itself because it was dying....and made a good job of it.

The Heugh area is a residential area with a lot of historic substantial properties....not suited to being converted into the Blackpool of the North.

Silly idea......Alt-x.......next?

Local Issues and Matters / Sea Views

Was at Seaham on Saturday and the sea was really rough. The breaking waves were putting water over  lighthouse and there was a huge number people there despite the weather. The area facing the harbour was crowded and there were a lot of photographers  struggling to support the huge lenses that dwarfed the cameras. Now Seaham in not Hartlepool but was it the same over at the Headland?  The waves will have been just as impressive on The Heugh but sadly no parade  of Cafes, Coffee Shops and parking spaces  mere yards from the sea-front.
