My Dear Friends
‘Be sure your sin will find you out.’ A well-known saying, and one that particularly came to my mind when the Volkswagen emissions scandal broke back in 2015, especially when I found that my car was affected and would be one of the most difficult models to fix. With hindsight it is pretty obvious that what was basically a fraud involving 11 million vehicles was not going to go undetected for ever; the wonder is only that they got away with it for so long. Right now the nefarious doings of the Russian government have been traced back from Salisbury to source, and Facebook permitting its customers’ data to be misused by Cambridge Analytica has been exposed.
All that can be said at the start of this month is that a proposal to make The Street in Waltham St Lawrence one-way in the direction of Milley Road, with a widened Halls Lane one-way in the direction of White Waltham is quite ridiculous. While the idea of reducing the rat-run, especially from the proposed 3,500 new houses beyond Milley Bridge, makes sense, this is just not the right solution. Apparently, road traffic design engineers define this layout as a filar loop. What a mix-up.
