Touching Blue Limited has proposed a novel solution to a huge problem; one of the UK's busiest roads. Major delays during peaks, high and increasing emissions, and detriment to the local community are expected to increase significantly due to regional growth by 2030. Current proposals include improving intersections along the route, however such 'improvements' seldom deliver the expected outcomes and can be short-lived. Either way, any improvement work simply means catering for yet More vehicles.
The solution proposed by TBL, would have the opposite effect. It would remove existing congestion, reduce emissions AND provide additional capacity beyond predicted growth yet have no negative impact on the infrastructure. Too good to be true? This is a very exciting project and I hope to be able to discuss more very soon.
A very important meeting will take place in October and I hope to provide an update soon after. As with anything radically new, getting beyond the perception of what is considered possible is a large part of the battle. Luckily, TBL tends not to notice such barriers to success, only solutions. More to the point, our partners in this venture, and with whom we have the good fortune to be working with, are also open minded and positive and don't take much convincing when a project with such potential comes along!
