    Default Bordeaux Tram

    When a progressive mayor took over Bordeaux in 1995 he promised to develop and modernise the city. He has done that to a great extent but the tram system he introduced - modern, fast, clean and smart - doesn't seem to have alleviated the traffic congestion in the city. The place is absolutely strangled with motor cars and there are lights every few metres so even the shortest journey takes an age.

    We went by car all the way in as we didn't know about the good park & ride system. But I'd certainly use that next time.

    Here's one I took in Seville. Can't say how effective the tram system is as we spent only a short time there and didn't use them.

    While on the topic of French transport, can anyone see what is wrong with these signs? Hope you can read them - the picture is compressed.

    It looks like the signs pointing to the right are pointing the wrong way down a one-way street.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    The bottom sign in each case says 'centre ville' and are pointing in opposite directions.

    Threw me as I started following one sign and glimpsed the other as I came off a small roundabout. Made sense of it later. It is a small medieval town and the road circles it - either way leads you to parking areas from where you can walk into the middle.
