Spend the money on railways instead
PUBLIC transport and the need to improve it is a constant issue in Bristol. But the council's proposal to spend up to £40 million on driverless pods to ferry people between Bristol Temple Meads and Cabot Circus is not going to improve it one jot.
Quite apart from the fact that Cabot Circus is a relatively short way from Temple Meads, to consider spending this amount of money on such a scheme in the middle of a recession is utterly unbelievable.
Is this simply the last throw of the dice by a city council administration which faces being usurped by an incoming elected mayor?
Or is it an outrageous vanity projects from Councillor Tim Kent and his colleagues who have failed deliver any meaningful improvement in public transport?

If they truly think this is worth £30 million then someone needs to ring for the men in white coats and quickly.
All we can hope for is that whoever wins the election for mayor next month will have the common sense and the authority to stamp on ridiculous projects like this.
If we are going to spend £40 million, spend it on improving local railways.
Then the entire city will benefit and not simply a few.
