Clearly if you are shopping you'll need some form of transport, a car or taxi and will tend to use a destination shopping area such as Serpentine Green with FREE parking. PCC selling off council car parks being an act of gross stupidity. It will of course be a no go area for the majority of Peterborians who need mobility assistance. Crossing times will need to be extended to facilitate wheelchairs and mobility buggies, but they won't, as it will hold up the traffic on Bourges Boulevard!
PBROTRIB SAYS: No it won't, the idea of a train is to go somewhere else.The private Train Company will make money for its shareholders
PBROTRIB SAYS: Simple says it all really, Simon. After Mr Machen has finished there will be NO footbridge (in fact a covered walkway) to stand on, it is going. And this astonishing statement: "When complete will result in some delay for motorists, this is outweighed by the clear benefits for pedestrians and cyclists, and for the city centre economy." However, NO ONE has quantified the clear benefits for pedestrians and why would they take that route from the train to see the dysfunctional fountains perhaps? "There is even going to be some delay for motorists" Motorists include JIT Delivery lorries, service vehicles, Ambulances, Fire Engines, Breakdown and other Emergency services, taxis, buses ( the few that are left) Customers for the new Waitrose, Station Taxis...and so on
