    I must admit, that doesn't feel good to me.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    It just looks cheap and nasty.

    Another step towards 'Blackpool-on-Avon': http://www.stratford-herald.com/1048...rt-monday.html

    And I thought talk of painting parts of Coventry blue was tacky!

    Permanent planning permission for the Ferris Wheel will just be waved through, as it'll be a nice little earner for the council: https://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news...ratford-wheel/

    Another great idea to bring chaos to Stratford: https://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news...s-and-traffic/

    It's been a while since I've been to Stratford but the island in the picture was always a nightmare for pedestrians, and I'm surprised that there weren't more accidents, especially with all the tourists.

    I'm really not sure what could realistically be done. Pedestrianise the 'centre' apart from out of hours deliveries?

    The problem with Bridge Street is that it's one of the main thoroughfares through Stratford. Every time it's closed, traffic comes to a complete halt as extra traffic is diverted to Brum Road (which is permanently clogged up anyway) or Shipston & Seven Meadows Road (which isn't much better during rush hour.

    The idea of building a 'Stratford Ring Road' occasionally raises its head, but is quickly shouted down, because people don't want a new road built through their nice quiet suburb/village (usually the same people who complain about the amount of traffic in Stratford!)
