<B>Monday 1 September:</b> Manchester City bought out by Arab group and black cabs add 20p

Published on September 1st 2008.


MANCHESTER CITY has been taken over by a Middle-Eastern company according to reports today. Abu Dhabi United Group Investment and Development Limited have released a statement today saying: "The investment services and development in Abu Dhabi has successfully completed the huge takeover." It is rumoured that Thaksin Shinawatra will take a back seat but remain on the board.

BLACK CAB fares are set to rise by 20p to cover fuel costs. The Manchester branch of the Taxi Owners and Drivers Association requested the flat-rate premium due to what they describe as 'considerable hardship' on taxi drivers. The rise has been approved by the council and will come into force after a 15-day notice period in October.

A CYCLIST has been deliberately hit by a car in Whalley Range. A 34-year-old man was knocked down on Kings Road at 5.30pm on Friday. Detective Constable Dave Ogden of Longsight CID, said: "I believe the driver targeted him and drove at him deliberately. We do not have a description of the car, but there must have been people in the area at the time who may have seen something. Anyone with information about the incident to call police on 0161 856 1967.

MANCUNIANS spend around 10 minutes a day stuck in traffic according to recent new research. Onepoll.com carried out a survey for supporters of the proposed congestion charging scheme. The survey also found that 65 per cent of people believe public transport services are slow and unreliable.

No more stuck in traffic ever!10 minutes a day is quite a bit after a week of it. And that's being conservative when you take into account the time as you crawl along in congestion. Now imagine that you were the only motorist on the road and you had a clear run with no restrictive speed limits and you drove faster but safer across town.How long would your journey take then?That's how long it would take in peak traffic with Liquid Flow Traffic Intersections.With variable speeds on main arterial roads and Liquid Flow Traffic Intersections traffic jams, gridlock and congestion cannot happen.They are based on moving as many vehicle down any roadway as safe as possible as fast as possible. There is no upper limit as to how fast this could be, it depends on how fast the roadway can be traversed safely. If this is placed into a computer simulation with intersections on all major roads with liquid flow intersections then there is no limit.When placed into the mosaic of a roads network around any city then traffic is diverted around an accident scene speeds are increased to maintain flow and no more gridlock when a single incident in a strategic location can cause jams or gridlock. These intersections at http://www.ubtsc.com.au when placed into the road mosaic will allow all motorists to cross town in peak traffic, faster, safer, without stopping at a single intersection while reducing fuel costs and pollution.You just have to build them.But none of this will happen without the help of people who want to give the country a roads infrastructure that works.Today's road system" is broke and it needs fixing" but not with outdated road intersections up to 140 years old that stop and slow traffic flow and adding extra lanes that just makes the mobile car park bigger. To fix the problem needs investment and if that's the kind of investment it will take, that's the kind of investment that must be made.Then you can build a traffic system that finally and completely eliminates all jams gridlock and congestion.Explore the benefits to all with a roads infrastructure that cannot fail and gives all vehicles the opportunity to cross town in peak traffic without ever stopping at a single intersection. What saving would the economy get from this infrastructure?How quickly would you get home if you didn't have to stop?How much money would you save?How would productivity improve and would that need more people employed?What effect would this have on pollution levels in the cities when engines are working at their most efficient?How much time would be saved by emergency vehicle going to the scene of an accident when seconds mean the difference between life and death?Just a few questions that deserve answers
