    Closer to the A19 so the lass doesn't have to trail through to Fulwell.

    Be quicker to get the metro (when the frigging thing works)

    It makes sense, I've tried all the options for commuting.
    8 years on the metro- unreliable, takes about 50mins on a good day when you include walking either side
    1 year cycling - good exercise but roads are falling apart and it's not that much fun in the cold months
    occasional car- well over an hour of sitting in queues, £10+ a day to park
    1 year motorbike - 20-25mins door to do, free parking, no worries about breakdowns, can be cold in winter but it was -7 one morning and plenty of layers meant I was fine. Gives the freedom to go elsewhere on my way home too.

    Clearly less so than the metro does ;)

    No gate, free covered parking next to out of hours access door. Have a quick change in the toilets on the way to the office, no body would know I used a bike, well apart from when I’m there on time and all the people on peasant transport arent.
