    Was just thinking that, @SkipdiverJohn would think all his Christmas's had come at once.

    Ahem, I see a car in that bike line, as well as the skip, what's new? :whistle:
    The bikes would be taken, the skip filled with old carpets :laugh:

    You may call them skips, I call them deep discount bike shops. ^_^

    They were updating cycling facilities here in Bristol the other year, just a wee bit of resurfacing etc. A simple job, welfare provision for the work force could have just been a portaloo, city centre location, toilets in nearby market (2 mins walk in St Nicholas Market), plenty of cafes around etc.

    So what did they decide to do for welfare provision?.

    Put a Groundhog type of tow-able unit....slap bang in the middle of a segregated cycle lane, blocking it entirely:wacko:.

    That's just a flimsy painted timber box, it offers no security, what is the point?

    It's a stunt by ETA on behalf of environmentally friendly modes of transport.
    They also have an inflatable zebra crossing which can be erected to temporarily demonstrate the need for a zebra crossing at locations where more conventional calls for a crossing have fallen on deaf ears.
