What’s got your goat driving on our crowded roadways?

first_imgSo we all know that getting around Los Angeles can be downright rotten, but spending more than 623.7 million hours annually stuck in traffic has given many commuters plenty of time to think how they would improve the system. From building monorails to zinging bad drivers with hefty fines, ideas are flowing. So what do you have to say? What drives you crazy about traveling around Los Angeles and how could it be solved? Where should transit agencies spend their money and why? We want to publish your ideas in an upcoming column and build a conversation based on commuters’ needs. So this is your chance to sound off: Even more than the Monday-through-Friday commute, McGrath is frustrated by the 405 Freeway backup congestion on the weekends. Family get-togethers at his sister’s home in Culver City are scheduled to avoid the worst of the congestion. “Every time I ride on the 405, I think about the tunnel and how I could be in the tunnel right now,” said McGrath, 61. Harold Katz of West Los Angeles recommends that parking enforcement officers be trained in traffic control and assigned to every major intersection in the San Fernando Valley and the Westside. “If people know it’s going to cost them $300 to block an intersection, we will cure that little problem quickly,” said the 74-year-old. Patrick Carland, 82, of Valley Glen wants businesses to stagger employees’ work hours to eliminate the crush from a traditional 8-to-5 day. He also advocates monorails to serve the area, but is opposed to more subways. “You go to work at 6 a.m. I go in at 8 a.m.,” Carland said. “Other than build a monorail, I don’t know what we can do. Traffic is a stinking mess.” But David Schrank, a researcher at the Texas Transportation Institute, said Los Angeles is doing everything it can – given its financial and geographical constraints – to make transportation better for Angelenos. “They’re increasing public transportation. They’re still pouring concrete. They’re doing some of everything,” said Schrank. Send your ideas to the Daily News, c/o Sue Doyle, 21221 Oxnard St., Woodland Hills, 91367.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Here’s what transportation experts and local motorists have to say: Panos Prevedouros, a professor of transportation engineering at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, said Los Angeles needs more freeway lanes to serve the “autopolis”. “Maybe California was the freeway capital of the nation at one time, but now there are too few roads for the people who live there,” he said. In fact Los Angeles and San Diego have 2.2 lanes for every 1,000 people, ranking just above Hawaii for having the nation’s tightest roadways. One of the best places to drive is Houston, where there are 6.1 lanes for every 1,000 people. Jack McGrath of Valley Village says it’s time to build a tunnel through the Santa Monica Mountains, from Victory Boulevard to at least Wilshire, and charge motorists a toll to use it. last_img read more

Village B&Bs for 2010 visitors

first_img3 January 2008Construction of bed-and-breakfast facilities has begun in the rural hinterland of South Africa’s Limpopo province in preparation for expected visitors during the 2010 Fifa World Cup, as well as to provide rural communities with access to sustainable income through tourism activites.The project, funded through a €1.7-million donation (about R15-million) from Irish Aid, is under way in the Muhlava, Sekgopo and Thabina villages outside Tzaneen in the Mopani district municipality.The site where these accommodation establishments are being constructed is about 30 minutes’ drive from Polokwane, a town which will host some World Cup matches.The project is expected to be completed by December this year.Project Manager Elvis Ntlwane said the project was one of the municipality’s local economic development projects, which seek to improve the livelihood of poor communities through tourism.The project has already created short-term jobs for more than 300 builders and labourers, including women and disabled people.“Cultural exhibition centres will also be built where crafters, dancers and story-tellers can showcase their skills and products,” Ntlwane said, adding that the project aimed to cater for the 2010 World Cup and beyond.Tour guide centres have already been established in the local municipalities of Greater Tzaneen, Greater Letaba, Greater Giyani, Ba-Phalaborwa and Maruleng to promote the district as a tourist destination.The rural district boasts some famous natural and cultural tourist attractions, including the home of South Africa’s most famous “mystic”, Rain Queen Modjadji, outside Modjadjiskloof.The area also has the largest concentration of a single cycad species in the world, while the district’s eastern-most town, Phalaborwa, is one of the busiest entrances to the world-famous Kruger National Park.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
