Only in Birmingham
« on: 11 June 2019, 08:04:24 »

A 1-mile section of the A38 Aston Expressway is to be converted into a paved park for International Car Free Day on September 22.

The lunatics have finally taken over the asylum.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

I avoid going into the centre of Birmingham so it won't affect me.

I can imagine the chaos it will cause on the M6 around Spaghetti Junction though.

When I go into Birmingham, its usually with half a dozen servers in the boot.  I can hardly get them on public transport.

Although I've all but closed our presence in there, just a lone server left, thats coming out the end of this month :)...    ...though a rumour is they want to build a new node there <facepalm>

When I had to go to Birmingham I just tried to drive straight past on the M5/M6 or M42, where usually I met traffic jams! ::) ::) :D ;)

Only really stopped for the NEC! :P

It's actually in honour of my Birthday  8)

Depending on how the pub goes the day before, I will be there with a selection of baggage and snow clearing equipment  :D

The snow cutter should prove particularly entertaining  :-X

The recent Velo cycle thing which was held on a Sunday and closed the A45 and many other routes was fun too :o

Because the other option they give me is Londonium.  And that is a shithole of the highest order, being dirty, smelly, and full or arrogant arseholes.  I pretty much dislike central brum, but nowhere near as much as I detest London from the A406 inwards.
