Not sure of the value 

of the harsh hedge trim going on around the industrial  areas near my work parking 

Yes it was a bit rambly but I have walked past so many times and the constant chatter from sparrows in there was a delight. 

Cutting these bushes down to half height exposes the bland buildings behind – surely for everyone passing living near or working there having your vision with a greater feel of green is better than those buildings hoving  into view? 

DonT these hedges also provide a bit of a screen from the noise of the road  for the workplaces ? And dont they absorb some of the traffic smells ? 

Cutting these hedges so low show expose the hard railings .. A severe view.. How much more pleasant the surroundings become with that green barrier intact….. 

Surely this undervaluing of these green edges needs to be reviewed ?  The little green corridors which have so much potential. Or is this just me? 


a new set of regular journeys 

Different transport systems bendy busses and the criss crossing of tram cables 

Cliff side funiculars 

Nothing like the commute whether for work or away to start building an association with a place. To get to know the flow of the traffic , the place on the bus stand and the possibilities of other destinations that give you a feeling – mostly false- that you know where you are.
