Danrok's Traffic Reduction Grand Plan
« on: December 13, 2008, 09:43:15 PM »
So here's the idea.  ;D

Scrap the new incinerator plan, and build a multi-story car park at the foot of La Collette Chimney.  People driving to work from the east would then park here.  They would then hop on to a lift inside the chimney.  This lift would whiz them up to the very top of the chimney where they would have a choice of zip lines, a.k.a death slides, to choose from.

Each zip line would be tethered at ground level in a different part of town.  The commuter would pick the line which ends up nearest to their place of work, holding on tight, they would fly down to where they need to be in about 60 seconds.

Not only would this reduce congestion in the town centre, those using it would be feeling very wide awake, and uplifted, when they reach their desks.

And if you built a 6 lane raised highway from St Cathrines to La Collette there'd be no congestion ;D

If you made them weather proof covered, and provided mats, then the ride to work would be fun. Eh Doh how to you get back at the end of the day as its all down hill. Easy have capsules, in a vacum.

So a reduction in the island's population wouldn't have an affect then?

I would have thought so, but this problem may just sort itself out they way things are going for car manufacturers.  I guess cycling and walking is good for you!
