    To be fair in about ten years time the centres of our cities will have far less traffic anyway. As shops disappear, which they will do. As our parents generation dies out the likes of Debenhams and WHSmith will fall by the wayside. Less delivery traffic and less need for cars if you have nothing heavy to carry back.
    All major consumable shopping is done out of town in places like Hollingbury or the Holmbush centre.
    Within a decade or two most people will only be visiting the centre of towns to meet friends and get food, or get pissed (and we are doing less and less of that).
    It will take a little longer in London maybe but Brighton city centre will be unrecognisable in 10 - 20 yrs.

      Pedestrianise everything from Withdean to the sea life centre and from Hove Lagoon to the marina. Make more cycle paths, and get a tram set up. Hopefully allowing pedestrian access to Dixons.
      And to hell with disabled people!

      In the last 16 years the number of cars on the road has increased by 5.5 million.
      That figure has shown a steady rise with absolutely no sign of abating.

      All the while Sussex with it's ever expanding population and agressive new home building policy appears to be desperate to join this 'snake'.

      Replace all pavements with travelators powered by spinning classes and treadmills. All the potential power generated in the gyms should be harnessed

      Having seen how the trams work in both Manchester and Brum this season can't hep but wonder if it is possible for it to be looked into for Brighton and Hove.

      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Upgrade and extend the Volks Railway tracks to take DLR-type light rail as far as West Street then up to the station. Trams on all the other main routes. We had them pre-war.
