Liverpool Is The First City To Get Fast Walking Lanes And London Is Jealous

Liverpool city centre has officially become the first place in Britain to get fast walking lanes…

…and suddenly the north is looking more and more appealing.  

After a survey carried out by Argos found that people really cannot stand slow walkers (did it really take a survey to discover that, Argos?), Liverpool clocked on and installed specific lanes for fast-paced pedestrians, meaning speedy Liverpudlians can whizz past crowds and avoid those nasty pavement hoggers.

Since us Londoners are constantly in a hurry, we’re green with envy. Although it’s all just a cheeky PR stunt from Argos, we think that such a project should be seriously considered. We’re this close to starting a petition. Sadiq Khan, make it happen, dude.

? These fast walking lanes will be more than necessary if the pedestrianisation of Oxford Street goes ahead ?
