With the news today that Nottingham’s Clifton Bridge is going to continue being out of action until (and I quote) ‘the end of the
millennium year’, Nottingham’s road users are faced with a terrible set of decisions
- Drive through the worst traffic since Los Angeles was invented, or
- Not drive full stop
However, with the traditional seasonal change soon to be upon us, motorcycling weather will be here (Yay, I hear you cry. Yay, yay, and thrice yay!).
It will be interesting to see how (if at all) Nottingham’s traffic adapts to not being able to use 1/3rd of the City’s bridges, as the commuters look for alternate routes and, dare I say it, alternate forms of transport.
But I’m definitely looking to getting on the Ninja, putting on my filtering face, and attempting to bring my (normally) 16-minute (motorbike) commute below what will be the (not normal) 40-minute (motorbike) commute.
