Spend money on local railways
IT is great news that Bristol will be getting its first new railway station in fifteen years to be built at a park and ride near Avonmouth, as reported in the Post on September 27.
All credit to the campaigners who have fought for the Severn Beach Line over the years.
But the money to be spent on this has to be seen in context.
Bristol City Council cabinet is being asked by its Lib Dem transport supremo Tim Kent to agree to £4.65m to be put forward from the £10m 'Invest in Bristol' package towards the Bus Rapid Transit to ensure the Department for Transport will grant approval to Mr Kent's crazy guided BRT bids in 2013.

In other words Mr Kent is prepared to spend millions of pounds of public money on lawyers and consultants in order to impose his discredited BRT schemes on Greater Bristol.
As a member of a lame duck administration, he should not be doing it. By voting for an elected mayor, Bristol (the only city to do so) gave its verdict on Mr Kent and his BRT.
