Poynton Regenerated

Despite having probably the most boring blog post title ever, this video is anything but. I love this kind of city design, the kind that goes against logic, history and even common sense, to some respect.

It tells the story of Poynton, a town near Manchester, than decided to replace a dangerous and busy crossroads with what is essentially nothing. If you've ever driven through crossroads where the traffic lights don't work, you'll empathsise with this. Worth 15 minutes of your time.
