The Problem with Sustrans

From On the Level

You would think Sustrans would be very eager to engage and work with cycle path advocates who are keen to work to improve the NCN. Yet each time I’ve tried to volunteer with Sustrans, I have been met with indifference at best and at worst, naiveté, ignorance, laziness and incompetence.

One year on and counting

I risked being stopped by the police to take the following pictures.

My MP didn't get away with it...

The problem is that the work has dragged on for over a year and there still isn't any sign of improvement.

The road works are still a mess. The vehicle lane improvements have been put in, but pedestrians are left to pick their way round holes in the pavement...

and the cycle facilities are still missing.

Sign of improvement?

More like evidence of incompetence!

A Tory MP is to go on trial accused of careless driving after allegedly knocking down a cyclist as he drove out of the House of Commons.

Simon Burns, 56, was driving a Range Rover when he allegedly hit the man, in his 20s, causing serious injuries.

The Opposition Whip was breathalysed by police, but was not over the limit.

More Police Harrasment of Photographers

Over at Crap Cycling & Walking in Waltham Forest are the pictures which the Metropolitan Police (in the shape of Police Community Support Officer JC 206) didn't want you to see.

It seems the Met police are simply out to bully photographers.

Is My MP a Terrorist?

Andrew Pelling MP stopped by cops for taking pictures of East Croydon cycle path

Well what a cock-up!

Maybe Andrew Pelling will finally get around to replying to my email about the way the Met Police are harassing photographers!
