Ooops...I hope your'e not a Town Planner, type person. I didn't mean to diss. the trade. I'm sure they do what they think's best.(for star gazing)
You've given me an idea for a project. I'm, as of now, collecting evidence of mad planning considerations. I'm already thinking of the M4 motorway with its chock a block single lane and empty bus lane.
No, I'm not a town planner. I just read about it.
I think your idea might be very interesting.
We have a televion program here where amateur photos of careless planning in roads and public places are shown, and then the reporters try to obtain some explanation from the responsible institutions. It's a riot.
I think you should find lots of material for that project.
