Hi Phil, There are a number of issues pushing transport policy towards walking/public transport (lack of capacity and pollution are the main ones). Unfortunately Coventry is behind the curve on this; taking out bus lanes and building more car parks (=more cars) at The Wave and the railway station. I think the people you have seen near the Lockhurst Lane flyover are looking at repairs/replacement of the flyover as it is in "fair condition" (the same as part of the Ring Road they have just done up). I suspect a new bridge to the south (through the builders merchant) is being planned, either as a permanent replacement or a temporary structure. There are long term plans to electrify the Coventry-Nuneaton line and this would almost certainly require the bridge raising (difficult with the shops on the approach road). Peter.

STRIKE WARNINGS West Midland Trains (inc LNW) senior conductors are going on strike on Saturdays from 16th November to 28th December. This is a dispute about driver only operation of trains (no senior conductor). A similar dispute on South Western Railway is now in its third year. This is likely to be very disruptive as WMT are already short staffed. Virgin Trains senior conductors are striking on Tuesday 19th November in a dispute over a disciplinary hearing. Peter.
