That does look like needless over signage to me. Particularly with the additional bike lane signs to the side. There was a similar situation in Newbury years ago when a bridge changed to being just a bus lane.
Personally I would think that a no entry, except for busses, taxis & cycles sign would be much more straightforward.

Only made it through the first 8 minutes.
Twist throttle, 5000 watts, 40+mph = Electric motorbike
In exactly the same way!? Pubs and restaurants have soft drinks on pumps…
This would also have the added effect of largely stopping people from buying soft drinks as the stuff from pumps / guns is absolutely rank.

I love a bottle of St Austell Brewery’s ale Proper Job. Then I found out that a 500ml bottle contains around 560 calories. So one of those every week night with my dinner was an extra day’s worth of calorie intake.
I always knew that beer was fairly calorific, but got a bit of a shock looking through a Wetherspoons drink menu that lists the cal…[Read more]

I have the Evoc FR trail (20 litre) which I use for pretty much everything. It has plenty of space for big days out and is set up really well with useful pockets & internal divisions as well as having a large main bag area. I discovered a couple of months ago in the Pyrenees that the main space can fit an entire unbroken baguette and still zip…[Read more]

Done. The last question should include an explanation / link to an explanation of what the right to repair is, or possibly be split into a series of sub questions. I answered unsure as I do think that people should be allowed to repair stuff, but also see a lot of potential issues with designing mass consumer items to be easy to dismantle and work…[Read more]
This is interesting (if you like that sort of thing) his album sales (US) have gone from 3.3 million for his debut (2004) to 85,000 for his last (2018). Can’t tell if that includes streaming, but I would think streaming has a big effect on the sales figures. But that’s still a massive drop.
His 2 best albums, I think are Dark Twisted blah and…
You’re not alone at all. My girlfriend has a similar opinion about me!!
