M4 around Swansea 12:44 - May 18 with 730 viewsPrivate_Partz

I see our esteemed transport adviser to WAG is spouting off in SWEP again.
Stuart Cole, whilst supporting and advising on a billion pound motorway around Cardiff, does not see the same need for us to have a 6 lane motorway. His answer? More buses because our congestion is due to local traffic. The exact same problem that causes rush hour delays at Brynglas. No surprise that the now Cardiff run paper''s editorial agrees with this.
This guy is a sham and has money for old rope. He should get off is ass and advise on a transport policy for the whole of Wales for that is what he is paid to do in his advisory role.


PUT YOUR CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN FIRST. IT IS COUNTRY BEFORE POLITICS THIS TIME. VOTE LIB DEM, LABOUR OR A PRO EU CANDIDATE IN JUNE. THEY ARE OUR ONLY HOPE OF GETTING US OUT OF THIS BREXIT MESS!!

Agreed, when I was driving to Swansea daily, it was horrendous...

It just goes to show you that a University education doesn't guarantee common sense but it does make you a cloistered individual, completely out of touch with the realities of the times. This sort of 'expert' comes up with the idea of blowing millions of pounds of taxpayers money on a race track near Ebbw Vale. Heaven help us.

If correctly managed, a race track could be a good idea. Like Celtic Manor raised profile of Wales in golf.

Wouldn't get say an F1 race for many a year but there are enough other formulas, bike races etc. Hell, Formula E if they were looking to expand from the predominantly street circuit formula.

Have music festivals there a la Donington...

So the race track wasn't a stupid idea. Wouldn't say it was a priority though.

The guy has never had to travel to or from Swansea in peak times, that is obvious. He isn't going to bite the hand that feeds him and upset the cosy apple cart up the road.

More buses ffs - is thus some kind of 1960s transport strategy ? Metro system anyone?

Exactly. The f*cktards love to implement things that have been phased out in London. Bendy buses being example 1, now promotion of buses such as the doomed bus lane project on the M4...

Yeah, it was horrendous driving daily to Cardiff.

Roads were all right like, just the thought of spending 8 hrs surrounded by scummers with that stupid nasal accent.

I drove into Cardiff today, first time i've done it for a long time at rush hour.

F*ck me it's bad, much worse than around Swansea for sure. I'd hate to have to do that run everyday.

Oh yeah, they adopted the bus lanes, adopted 20 mph roads... it's just not worked, people don't want to use the buses.

Getting across Cardiff is a nightmare at times.

New council leader is into sustainable transport, keen cyclist so sadly I can only see things getting worse not better.

EDIT: With the planned new houses in Cardiff North as part of the LDP, it'll be chaos unless they get a clue about transport links... instead we'll probably get great ideas like bicycle lanes, metro, new train stations...

Attract all the jobs to Cardiff. Find Infrastructure needs improving. Spend millions improving infrastructure in Cardiff which attracts more jobs to Cardiff.

Rinse & repeat.

Meanwhile in the rest of Wales..........

Professor Cole says the same stuff over and over again saying that Cardiff should have fortunes spent on transport there while Swansea should get a few scraps for bus lanes and cycle paths.

Aren't there any other transport exprts in Wales other than Cole ?
