Pointless signs - Farringdon

Baker prepares for opposition!

Good to see Norm preparing for life outside of Parliament in 2015.

This from the Beeb...

Junior Transport Minister Norman Baker has released a pop single with his band The Reform Club.

Eye sees a great future for Norm! Mostly at the bottom of the escalator at Piccadilly Circus station...

Wise words from Patrick McLoughlin

This from a DfT press release today... 

"Pointless signs blot our landscape!"


Alas the remedies proposed by the DfT apply only to local authorities:

Town halls will be rewarded for taking action against the scourge of unnecessary traffic signs with a new prize launched today by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.

The award is part of the Government’s drive to cut the number of signs spoiling our towns, cities and countryside. Many local authorities are making good progress in getting rid of clutter from their roads but the Government wants to see more action being taken to make old and confusing signs a thing of the past. 

A shame a similar scheme could not be extended to the railways.
