    Took me one hour to get across the Mancunian way last night and getting home tonight similar.

    It would appear to me that the city’s growth is making travelling into the city centre by car almost impossible at times. I am sure it is getting worse.

    One thing that struck me tonight was how many people stuck in the traffic only had one person on the car. Surely car sharing clubs are a significant way forward?

    Interested to know other peoples expereniances of getting in and out of town and what you think the answer is.

    It’s deliberate and dreadful. Get the contgestion charge in ASAP so I can drive to work with clear roads

    clearly orchestrated, just avoid cars as much as possible.

    I also love how we have developed loads of bike lanes but cyclists still drive on the roads and ignore their designated cycle lane I have paid for for them. To keep them safe.

    I say that as someone who sometimes bikes to work and appreciate the safety of a designated lane. Others don’t and clearly have a death wish and want to cause more congestion.

    Congestion charge voted out, unsuable road management voted in, deliberate ploy by the council

    I can walk to work these days. I actually cover more ground than some of those sat in their cars for the same amount of time.
    Some people simply refuse to look at other options; they are like little prisoners in their little shells.

    I'm so glad I work in the opposite direction to town. I agree about the single-user cars though, car pool lanes needed
