Good to hear. Its been a while since I flicked through it. My opinion tends to be coloured by the fact that a friend of mine is a solicitor who frequently leaves me aghast with his pronouncements on how our friends in the legal profession can pretty much bend the laws into whatever shape they want.

I now generally shy away from discussing such matters, as if I vented my disquiet I'd likely lose an old friend.

Seeing photo-threads of stationworks on this site in three years would be fantastic.

Certainly. While I'm fully in favour of MN and believe it should proceed at the same time I'm also aware that DU is the more important project with the greater benefit. In fact, the benefits of both projects can be enhanced if they are built at the same time as they will increase the utility of the other one.
I'd love that too Dvblvnia. However, my gut instinct is that its an either/or situation, that's why I plumped for DU.

So has there been any actual news on whether or not DU will go ahead?

241,000 people and growing. Britain's most heavily wooded urban area, 92% satisfaction rate and now centre of the South Midlands region. Oh and we're a city regardless of whether or not the Queen has noticed.
