All these names of Bristol drinking establishments brought 1980´s memories flooding back.

I worked the very busy bars at the Old Port House and the Dug Out Club. And spent a lot of time on Temple Meads.

But it wasn't commissioned!
Regards

PS But it is possible to commission with some snags, eg temporary fishplate fitted if the welders ran out of time.


This morning's overrun was all down to paperwork, the physical work was all done on time.

So it sounds as though Bristol City Council & associated authorities are starting to make serious noises about building an underground railway network. You'll have to forgive me if I'm maybe a little sceptical at the idea of Bristol delivering anything in 10 years, let alone one of the most ambitious local transport schemes envisaged anywhere outside of London...

Marvin the Mayor's on another planet...can't blame him for what previous authorities didn't do, but this is simply not going to happen.

City centre to the airport? How is that going to work, given that the city is close to sea level and the airport is 620ft above that?

 

What would the gradient of that underground line be?

who are they kidding? How much is Crossrail in London going to cost by the time it opens? That’s tunnelling through clay, most of Bristol is on sandstone? The mainline link up to London was being electrified, but they’ve given that up reaching Chippenham, why? Just give everyone in Bristol an electric pogo stick.
