Would we be better starting off again?
THE so-called Bus Rapid Transit scheme has been a source of contention from the day it was announced. And it continues to be so. Many people regard it with derision seeing it as a wholly inadequate compromise.
Only a handful have ever talked about it being the answer the Bristol's transport needs.
Mayor George Ferguson appears to have wrung concessions from the transport minister about a revised route meaning the dockside will not be ruined by BRT buses.
But the agreement of a minister is one thing, getting civil servants at all levels to put that promise into action is quite another.

So we may not yet have seen the end of this debate.
Meanwhile one of Mr Ferguson's transport advisors Pip Sheard has resigned.
A further illustration of the fragile agreements and trust between people and groups associated with this scheme.
It is no good grabbing millions of pounds from the government and squandering it on an ill-conceived scheme that may do nothing to improve congestion.
Perhaps we would be better off turning the money down and starting again from scratch?
Why will no-one in a position of authority consider this?
