@damonwake some of the pre-metro stations in brussels have a weird thing where there are two platform heights (one set back from the other), so when they retrofit the tram tunnel to be a proper metro it fits haha
Recently it was announced that, after decades of neglect, the Charleroi Metro is getting its 5th line built and trams renovated.
A breeze of fresh air for a "metro" that seems frozen in the 80s.
Let me show you some pics of Belgium's most bizarre public transport network 🚋🚇🇧🇪
@lorenzo_hermoso nice, will be interesting to see what happens if they do win it. they were anti Soho pedestrianisation, but I wonder whether Oxford Street might get a look in given it was a mayoral priority
@AyoCaesar imo the right thing for Labour to do in this situation would be to insist on a by-election, have him resign his seat, move the writ for the election, and then at the last minute select a completely different candidate because he’s literally a Tory
@debbiesimone123@hrh_nic yes I do live in an estate, where lots of drug dealing happens. it’s hugely obvious that criminalisation has been a failure when there are people shooting up in your stairwell every other day
This will be interesting for May’s local elections if it holds until then - on a very good night Labour could potentially take Westminster council (there were quite a few marginal-ish wards after 2018, though they have been redrawn). RBKC is a lot more solidly Tory though twitter.com/DJBond6873/sta…
