ARE councillors James Alexander and Dave Merrett the correct people to blame for the Lendal Bridge fiasco?

As our democratically elected representatives, it was their right to demand the trial even if it was unpopular with the majority of the electorate.

The planning and implementation of the trial would be the responsibility of the professional, senior executives of the council. It was surely their job to see that the signage was adequate and the scheme was legal.
