Julie Magee omits main rat-hole angle.

18 Nov

What lies beneath… is the headline to the piece by Julie Magee in Daily Echo of Bournemouth for Thursday 18 November 2010. She goes:

Dark and dingy subways could become a thing of the past in Bournemouth as part of plans to transform public spaces.

Julie packages the data on this story efficiently, but seems to have overlooked an answer the ordinary people plodding the street need town planning councillors to provide. The question can be put two ways:

WHY NO APOLOGY FOR BUILDING PEDESTRIAN RAT-HOLES IN THE FIRST PLACE?

WHY NO ADMISSION OF YOUR PROFESSION’S MORONIC ERROR OVER RAT-HOLES?

These so-called pedestrian subways were disliked and feared from the start.

But nobody could shake these conceited, self-infatuated fools in town planning and traffic management from their fascist determination to force pedestrians into holes under the road.

The car was God to these arrogant jerks.

They KNEW that they KNEW best.

To every design challenge there are likely to be a handful of intelligent solutions, and perhaps one fatuous approach that requires the services of an utterly perverse and warped mentality to conceive and blithely impose.

Get those answers, Julie!

    Said rat-holes DO NOT EXIST in Thailand. I have NEVER SEEN a subway. Even the ROADS go OVER. We have loads of pedestrian BRIDGES – and they HAVE to be CHEAPER to CONSTRUCT.
