  1. Thank you John for the clarification. I am not looking for credit but keen to push our tram campaign forward and also our traffic lights out (or part time) idea. Good now that we have everyone onside and some of these ideas may come to fruition and at least be given a trial.
  2. Thanks for your kind comments guys but I am not sure if this refers to the idea of a tram along the GWW or if this is something completely different? There is no mention of the GWW maybe @John Harrington can through some light on this story?
  3. Well they have finally admitted that their scheme does not work! Source
  4. With the new administration we may actually get a lights our trail! We still have our active petitions on here too.
  5. Now that we have a new administration this could now come to fruition, hopefully we can look at a traffic lights out trial too.
  6. Maybe now we can get our campaigns going, in particular a tram along the GWW is a real possibility and hopefully a traffic lights out trial
  7. Good luck Tracy Bowes Belmont Rural, she is an excellent councillor.
  8. I have to disagree, I knew exactly what I was voting for, LEAVE the EU! I do not remember reading anything on the ballot paper about any deals etc.. I voted to leave the EU, that was to LEAVE the Custom Union, Leave the Single Market, LEAVE EVERYTHING! The Remoaners are adding their own complications to justify a second referendum.
  9. I also think unless we get a better deal than the current terrible one that we should walk away with NO DEAL.
  10. I also think unless we get a better deal than the current terrible one that we should walk away with NO DEAL.
  11. Personally, I hate the roof, looks like the old market and I Neve liked that cattle shed design either, still better than the original option
  12. I have always had respect for Cllr Edwards but I was very disappointed with Cllr Edwards because as you will remember John during our presentation about the traffic lights trial to the City Council when Phil Edwards was Mayor he promised a letter in support to our campaign from the Mayors office, which as you know, never came...
  13. I have just been listening to the live stream from Full Council held yesterday at the Shire Hall in particular, the reactions from various Councillors about the alternative budget proposed by IOC. Live Stream can be found here At around 228 of the live stream Cllr Paul Rone speaks, during his brief response I notice that he says that if turning off the traffic lights is such a good revolutionary idea, then why has nobody else done it? Well actually Paul, quoting you using your own words from yesterdays meeting, "Seek Before You Speak" Turning off traffic lights has been successful in several towns and cities, one that comes to mind is Portishead, check out the video below: Portishead Traffic Lights Furthermore, you suggest that nobody has done this other than Invercargill in New Zealand, you also suggest that this place has a mere population of 7,500 people, well actually you are wrong sir, it is almost as big as Hereford! Education Lesson below: You also say that it would be dangerous for pedestrians?? I am confused as there is no suggestion that any of the pedestrian traffic lights would be turned off at all, they would still be working, if this was given a trail and yes that is all we have ever asked for, a trial. Cllr. Rone also suggest that it would work for maybe 12 hours and then there would be mayhem? Again, we have video evidence much of which you will find on our youtube channel where the traffic lights have been out of order for several days and it is common knowledge that when these lights are out of service and using our words, the 'traffic just flows' in Hereford. To suggest that the members commenting on here are irresponsible keyboard warriors is totally unfair, there has been a lot of research over the past 20 years including that of one of our members Martin Cassini, you can check out his credentials here Martin Cassini on the One Show Finally, you also ask why is nobody else doing this? Because people like you are all too quick to reject these proposals. Well as you can see above other towns and cities are doing this successfully or is your dismissal just down to the fact that this is not your or Cllr Edwards idea? Cllr. Rone and Cllr. Edwards, I am passionate about our city and keen to explore all ideas that may eliminate the terrible daily congestion in Hereford, I just wish others would look and explore some of these ideas.
  14. I walked my bed into Ross tip, I just had to ring the bell on the entrance, this sets of a mini siren to warn people of pedestrians, not sure about Hereford tip.
