A blog about cars in Aberdeen.

This is a blog about cars in Aberdeen because most people aspire to the convenience of personal motor transport, pay dearly for the privilege, provide much employment, contribute greatly in taxes, and then people expect them to ‘leave the car at home’, while their money is spent creating cycle lanes and the like for freeloading cyclists.

Further Yet More Road Closed Misery!

Another Road Closed!
Ugh! This is getting beyond a joke. Our increasingly smug (Stockholm syndrome?) double agent - Codename "Janniejumbo" - operating from his deep cover legend within the so-called cycling activist 'fraternity' left us a new microfilm in the latest dead-letter box behind the Denburn Heritage Dual Carriageway commemorative plaque on Rosemount Viaduct.

Haudagain Roundabout
Look at the congestion!
In this film, he exposes the fact that what should be a super-secret rat run for important motorists travelling between Rosehill to Bucksburn and avoiding the Haudagain Roundabout (second-worst roundabout in Britain) has been closed to all traffic but pestestrians, cyclits and arrogant horsey people.

It's a disgrace! We demand that this vital piece of nationally-important infrastructure be opened for use by the drivers of Abedeen Cars immediately. Not only that, we also want the planned 'improvements' at the Haudagain Roundabout to proceed immediately. The demolition of the tenement blocks at Logie and Manor to make way for a relief road will make a hundred or so people homeless, but - em, whatever! That's DSS-land anyway. About these people we care not one jot.

In any case, we like the council's choice of words about the necessity to demolish the tenements in Logie and Manor - they say that building a relief road on the site of these homes will:
...contribute to the City Council’s regeneration aims by complementing the development of the Logie/Manor area of Middlefield.

Contributing and Complementing
