Darlington council to encourage staff to share cars

A piece in the Advertiser today describes a new website they're running for employees to enter journey details to sacilitate car sharing. It also mentions schemes being developed to increase bike and bus lanes and to encourage children to walk/cycle to school.

I wonder how much they're spending on the scheme, since elsewhere in the paper is an article about the £52million scheme to upgrade the bypass, so it can cope with the estimated increase in use from 20,000 cars a day to 41,000 a day by 2025...

All of the articles I've seen about the proposed Tesco development in the town centre mention increased car parking.

Madness.
