Vegetable and Fruit Growing on an Allotment in Edinburgh
Are the roads through Lyon as busy. It used to take an age to get through when we were travelling from the south but then they built a bypass. We've been through lots of times but never actually stopped.
Lyon appears to have gone to some lengths to address transport issues. Aside from the autoroute which, as you say, bypasses the town centre, they have a Metro, trams, buses and a bicycle pick up/drop off scheme - in addition to extensive bicycle lanes. We also saw banks of electric cars charging. No wonder Edinburgh sent a consultative group there to compare notes. (Still Edinburgh have made a right royal mess of financing the soon to be launched airport tram development)
I love Lyon! I lived a bit south of there in the Rhone valley for a year, teaching English in a school as part of my French degree. I used to go up to Lyon every week to the British Council library. Was back a few years ago at a conference and was very impressed by how their public transport had come on.
