Certainly agreed on the percentage of traffic comprising buses on College Green. While tentatively supportive of this so-called ‘bus gate’, as has been rehearsed at length on this site, it is without question buses that generate the hostile – bordering on dangerous – environment on College Green, with long expanses of clear roadway leading up to its numerous pedestrian crossings creating a harsh conflict between traffic and pedestrians. Presumably this bus gate will at the very least see the same amount, if not more, buses using College Green?
To honest, I’d sooner have double the amount of private cars passing through if it meant a complete eradication of buses from this space. They comprise a loud, ignorant, intimidating presence which compromises the showpiece room of the city – equivalent to allowing kiddies with muddy feet run riot about the front parlour. Out! –>
