The only public bus service that goes anywhere near the city’s biggest venue is to be upgraded to use double decker buses and be re-routed so it goes even closer. The 24 bus, which runs close to Ashton Gate Stadium, will be a double decker bus service from next month - and have its route radically changed at the south-western end to run right past the 27,000-capacity stadium. But the changes, which will come into effect on September 15, have been criticised by some local residents in nearby Ashton Vale - because the bus will no longer serve their area as often. The 24 is one of Bristol’s most indirect bus routes, going from Southmead Hospital in the north on a series of loops around Lockleaze, down Stapleton Road in Easton, through the city centre and then Redcliffe, Southville, along North Street to Ashton Gate, back into Bedminster and finally into Ashton Vale. It is the only bus service to go to Ashton Vale, a suburb of Bristol only accessible via either a narrow bridge … [Read more...] about Only bus service for Ashton Gate to be re-routed
The overnight A14 closures are a bit of a pain, and sometimes the diversions are incredibly confusing, but residents of one Cambridgeshire village have reached a breaking point. Swavesey villagers have been suffering for the last two years thanks to A14 night closures, causing lorries and HGVs to rumble down the narrow village streets. Residents have complained of houses shaking, being kept awake at night and even damage to the roads and walls of their homes. Will Wright, chairman of the parish council, decided one night to count the lorries to realise the extent of the issue. He told Cambridgeshire Live: "Between 9.30pm -10.30pm there were 25 articulated lorries and a further 20 HGVs driving through. Then from 10.30pm -11.30pm 23 articulated lorries and another 11 HGVs. "I know this is all down to the night time closures [of the A14] but still. Our village is falling apart." Tonight (April 10) locals are coming together for a parish council meeting where the impact of the roadworks … [Read more...] about A14 overnight closures making villagers livid
Jefferson Graham USA TODAY Published 12:41 PM EDT Apr 9, 2019 SANTA MONICA – To say that Ring CEO Jamie Siminoff is driven is an understatement. The scrappy entrepreneur, who hustled his video bell product for several years on home shopping networks and TV ads and struck up a working relationship with Amazon that resulted in a $1-billion 2018 purchase, was in a brief coma 48 hours before USA TODAY came to visit Monday. He was skiing in Montana, made a bad move and got hit. He says he initially couldn't remember what he had for breakfast and didn't recognize his son. Luckily, nothing was broken, his senses quickly returned and a beat up and bruised Siminoff, 42, was back on a plane the next day, looking sharp and rested when meeting with USA TODAY Monday morning. "It's just another part of living a lucky life," says Siminoff. "I've just been very lucky." Like getting Amazon to offer $1 billion for a company rejected by ABC's Shark Tank a few years … [Read more...] about Ring doorbell alarm company wants to cut crime in your neighborhood
Earlier this year, the council issued a proposal to crack down on a range of anti-social behaviour problems in Manchester city centre. The Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) would give the authority new powers to ban people from behaviour including 'aggressive' begging; urinating or defecating in the street; dropping needles; or refusing to move out of doorways or stairwells. Anybody caught doing so could be hit with a £100 on-the-spot fine, rising to £1,000 in court if unpaid. The move comes amid growing concern among residents and businesses over begging and drug use in the city centre, including in car parks and inside blocks of flats, and follows similar use of PSPO powers in places such as Blackpool and Oxford. However, it immediately set off a heated political row. Critics say the measures would criminalise the homeless, hitting them with fines they would be unable to pay, and simply move the problem elsewhere.
