Supporters are recommended to keep up to date with the latest UK government guidance regarding COVID-19 by visiting gov.uk/coronavirus.

TEAM NEWS…


Skipper Tom Lawrence is available again after serving a three-match ban following his red card in the 1-0 home win over Peterborough United last month. Lawrence missed recent defeats to Millwall, Luton Town and Cardiff City but is expected to come straight home.

Winger Kamil Jozwiak will be sidelined again with an ankle injury sustained in the 2-2 home draw with Birmingham City at the end of January.

THE ADVICE OF THE MANAGER…

Manager Wayne Rooney offered his pre-match views to Rams TV and he said: “We probably have the perfect game to come in; Barnsley at home.

“It’s an important game for us and we have to come away with three points, it’s as simple as that.

“That’s our mindset and we’re going to attack the game and try to get three points. Being at home against a team around us is the perfect opportunity for us to try to bounce back.

“Barnsley have had some good results lately so we know it’s not going to be an easy game and we’ll have to be at our best.

“We need to be more clinical, that’s the only thing we’ve been missing lately. We have to be clinical in front of the lens and when it really matters.

He added: “I keep saying it, but the players deserve a lot of credit for putting themselves in the position where it’s still possible for us to stay in the league.

“We know it’s made more difficult with recent results, but after the season we’ve had and the players have gone through everything they’ve been through, it’s a credit to them to be in this position. where there is still a fighting chance.

“We’re going to keep going, fighting until the end and if we do it’s an incredible achievement. If we don’t, it’s still a great achievement for what the players have put in this season.

FROM THE DRESSING ROOM…

Forward Tom Lawrence spoke to Rams TVat Moor Farm Training Ground as the Rams prepare to host the Reds at Pride Park Stadium.

“I missed the last games but I’m ready to go now” he said. “It’s been very difficult to watch from the touchline but I’ve made sure I’ve done the work off the pitch to make sure I’m ready when the Barnsley game comes around.

“From my personal point of view, I made a decision that I shouldn’t have made and I couldn’t help the team on the pitch.

“I have to do everything I can now to help the guys on the pitch, but they’ve been brilliant and given their all every week and we’ll keep doing that until the end of the season.”

MATCH OFFICIALS…

Robert Jones will oversee Saturday’s game at Pride Park.

Jones has overseen 17 games so far this season in all competitions, showing 56 yellow cards and one red card.

His last Derby game was the 2-1 loss at Oakwell to Barnsley in November.

He will be assisted by Darren Can and Nick Greenhalgh on the lines, while Josh Smith was named the fourth official.

EFL SUBSTITUTION RULES…

The five-substitution rule has been scrapped for the 2021/22 season, the English Football League confirmed in July.

The rule allowing clubs to make five changes, instead of the usual three, was introduced after football restarted in June 2020 after a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since matches were to be condensed into a short period, this was deemed beneficial and allowed managers to make up to five changes in three intervals during a match.

Clubs have had a longer break between seasons this time around and so the temporary rule has been changed.

Teams may name seven substitutes but will only use a maximum of three.

Plans to create a countryside industrial park in Whittingham are set to receive the green light from Preston City Council.

The application is to demolish the current buildings at the Sandbank Estate in Cumeragh Lane and construct 11 modern units on adjoining land.

In addition, an existing dwelling, Sandbank House, accessible from Ashley Lane, would make way for a new residential building.

In February 2021, a similar industrial unit project was rejected by Council, but these plans also included a preliminary planning application for the development of up to 10 houses.

A commentary on the new proposal claimed that, should these plans go ahead, a new application would be made for additional accommodation once the existing estate had been demolished.

Whittingham Parish Council lodged an objection, saying there was no justification for the industrial development project in the countryside.

The parish council suggests that the existing units be demolished and replaced, allowing for gradual redevelopment of the site.

Despite this, a report to the planning committee says the benefits of the application – including economic growth and improving the appearance of the area – tip the scales in favor of its approval.

The decision will be made on Tuesday (March 1).

Defender Richard Stearman will miss out once again as he serves the final game of his three-match ban following his red card in Derby’s 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield Town earlier this month.

THE ADVICE OF THE MANAGER…

Manager Wayne Rooney offered his pre-match views to Rams TV and he said: “It’s a big game for us.

“We know a win will take us above Peterborough so it’s a huge game and we’ve had a full week to prepare for it.

“As I keep saying, we’re taking it one game at a time and we know Peterborough will bring the fight and the energy and from their perspective they can take a six point lead over us with a victory themselves.

“We know it will be a tough game and we will do everything we can to get three points in front of our home fans.

“Our form at Pride Park has been good all season and the next two games, against Peterborough and Millwall on Wednesday, are important for us, both being at home.

“If we ever need the fans, it’s Saturday. We need them right behind the team and voice for 90 minutes. The support has been great all season, but on Saturday we really need it.

FROM THE DRESSING ROOM…

Midfielder Max Bird spoke to Rams TV at the Moor Farm training ground as the Rams prepare for the first consecutive home game

He said: “Saturday is a huge game for us.

“We had low points in the season, we also had very high points and we know Saturday is a big game.

“Last Saturday against Middlesbrough, when we lost 4-1, we weren’t at our best and there were times we reflected on before training, but I think the guys are all ready for that.

“We all believe in each other and the staff gives us a lot of belief that they know we can do the job.”

(A route option by WS Golf Course, from page 253 of DEIS section 4.2.1)

If you are still trying to update yourself on the Sound Transit Environmental Impact Assessment Project for West Seattle Light Rail (and beyond), here’s your next chance to watch a briefing/discussion: Tuesday morning is on the agenda for the 9:30 a.m. online city council meeting Transportation Committee. The DEIS is the document that details the various potential impacts of multiple route and station location options. Sound Transit is taking comments until April 28; then its board of directors will decide this summer which routing/station locations will go through the final phase of environmental studies. The city has several roles in the process – it’s working with ST on station planning, it could consider contributing “third-party funding” for options that would cost more, and it has two representatives on the board of directors of ST, the president of the city council Debora Juarez and mayor Bruce Harrel. You can register to comment on Tuesday’s meeting – the agenda explains how – and you can watch it live (or recorded for later playback) via Seattle Canal. If you would like to view the DEIS independently, you can do so via ST’s online open house here, which also offers commenting opportunities.

Who knew that our titles published yesterday would be so premonitory? First, we correctly predicted that everyone was overreacting to the supposed blizzard from the south …

We hate to say we told you (in fact, we don't hate doing this).
We hate to say we told you (in fact, we don’t hate doing this).

But we also warned Mayor Adams that his insistence that New Yorkers are better than everyone else isn’t so good-looking. Well, we were still right; hours after we posted our scruples, the mayor ended up getting pretty badly evaluated with his “we’re a town of swagger” comment at a school in the Bronx. Check it out for yourself (or read Post’s story):

  • Term limits worked for town hall and city council – as Streetsblog friend Aaron Naparstek pointed out oh-so-tap yesterday – so now Governor Hochul suggests a two-term cap for governors (NY Post, NY Times). Our friends from Reinvent Albany are all in it.
  • Safety advocates on the streets of New Jersey demand change after the bloodiest year since 2007. (NJ.com)
  • And finally, it’s Throwback Tuesday, so let’s go back to 2010, when Eric Adams spoke to residents of Transportation Alternatives and Park Slope about the benefits of lowering the speed limit to 20 miles per hour. The historic Streetfilms video shows the then-state senator had always gotten it on issues like street safety and public transportation (and, as our old editor always reminds us, the fauna):

We’re still in our December Giving Campaign, so it would be wrong to open the daily headlines without a) reminding you of said Giving Campaign and b) honoring the kind and generous (and gorgeous!) Hours. So here are some heartfelt thanks to you, Ryan, Choresh, Carla, Jonathan, Justin and Michael!

And the rest of you, we hope to have won your support for another year. In case you need a refresher on what we’ve done so far in 2021, here’s a recap. And one more promise: your donations will be never be used to redesign our website with pop-up ads or autoplay videos that annoy readers of The Daily News, amNY, The Post and even The Times. It’s not going to happen on this site, folks.

OK, on ​​the news!

  • We were happy to see WNYC / Gothamist cover the start of DOT’s Dangerous Vehicle Reduction Program, but we broke the story here. (No connection, no love, Gothamist?)
  • Kudos to Guse at Newsuh for humanistically looking at the increase in homelessness on the subway and not turning into a tabloid-style call for a crackdown.
  • Outrage: Two NYPD agents whose pursuit of a motorcyclist resulted in the deaths of the biker and his girlfriend ended up making a plea deal to keep their cop jobs. They will both end up losing only 20 days of vacation. (NYDN)
  • A street vendor was stabbed in a robbery. (New York Post)
  • Former Staten Island rep Max Rose seems to be looking for some help from his friend Gerry (you know, Gerry Mander). (New York Times)
  • Credit is Due: DOT has improved the lives of tens of thousands of bus passengers in Soundview with new dedicated bus lanes. (Public transportation)
  • DoorDash is entering the 15-minute grocery delivery industry, which DoorDash says not lead to more delivery people doing more work faster because the new DashCorps is different from Restaurant Delivery Dashers. Kirstyn Brendlen’s story in amNY was pretty comprehensive. Julianne Cuba’s story on Streetsblog rightly focused on the safety concerns of workers… and everyone else.
  • We were also happy to see The Times covering what appears to be a good project to “light up” the long buried Tibbetts Creek, but we were disappointed the newspaper didn’t see the irony: the project will end in a path. green connecting Van Cortlandt Park and the Harlem River behind a target, but this “green lane” is essentially a narrow strip running along the Major Deegan Expressway … itself an environmental issue the Times was silent on. (Other than that, and the fact that the project has no funding yet.)
  • From the Assignment Office: Tuesday night, the Upper West Side Community Board 7 will pass a resolution calling for stricter regulation of legal e-bikes – a resolution (read it here) that our friends at StreetopiaUWS are calling “baseless and unfounded. discriminatory ”and one that“ will not increase public safety ”. (Wait until CB7 hears about cars!) Either way, the action in the Zoom Zoom room begins at 6:30 p.m. Register here.
  • Council member Laurie Cumbo revealed at a town hall meeting last night that the father of DOT commissioner Hank Gutman has passed away. We offer our condolences to the Commissioner and his family.
  • And, finally, our friends at Transportation Alternatives have posted an excellent thread on all the crucial bills city council needs to pass before the majority of its members go into forced retirement on December 31:

Early Thanksgiving Edition – Streetsblog New York City https://thistuesday.org/early-thanksgiving-edition-streetsblog-new-york-city/ Tue, 23 Nov 2021 05:03:53 +0000 https://thistuesday.org/early-thanksgiving-edition-streetsblog-new-york-city/ It was supposed to be a slow news day, but the powers that be yesterday took advantage of the looming holiday lull yesterday to lose some salutary developments in active transportation and transit – for which we are grateful!

It was supposed to be a slow news day, but the powers that be yesterday took advantage of the looming holiday lull yesterday to lose some salutary developments in active transportation and transit – for which we are grateful! (We try to practice gratitude every day, even though decades of ink stew have hampered our views.)

It’s good to have good news even as, in three days’ time, Americans (in Tryptophan and Bourbon-induced stupor, no doubt) unleash an orgy of road violence. This utterly predictable disaster will come in a week when a Wisconsin SUV driver allegedly used his vehicle as a weapon in a multiple homicide which, as the Washington Post explained, is a terrifyingly common occurrence in America and around the world ( proving that, in one sense at least, America is really not exceptional).

Yet is this country big or What?

Yesterday our Julianne Cuba discovered an unpublished and little-noticed Department of Transportation study documenting that New Yorkers, especially Manhattanites, love to eat al fresco! (We knew this intuitively, but we’re grateful for the support of a trend that allows us to date safely during a pandemic.)

Then the Department of Sanitation posted an exclusive full of welcome news on our grizzled editor, revealing that it had finally hired some of those lean, slow plows to sweep our bike lanes of unwanted white stuff. (Now if city ​​workers and everyone would only stop parking in it…) The scoop appeared in the early morning.

In other pre-holiday news prompting to thank:

  • The city is collecting more fines than ever from the skanky motorists who continually crowd the bus lane, she told the New York Post in a pre-Thanksgiving document. This is because there are fixed and bus mounted cameras to catch criminals. Iron Man David Meyer got a Great deeply disturbing quote from a bus lane thug complaining that fines “rape” car drivers.
  • The Opinion page of the New York Times ran a mind-boggling proposition from Jay Caspian Kang that we could really support: Free Electric Bikes for Everyone – to Ride on Car-Free Streets!
  • Columbia’s undergraduate magazine The Blue and White examined how biking and city planning could improve Morningside Heights. After dodging taxis on the Heights Highway (er, Broadway…) for a dozen years, we totally agree!
  • The busy Broadway Junction station is finally getting elevators, thanks to federal government money. (NYDN, Brooklyn Paper)
  • A trio of big nonprofit bosses argued in a Daily News editorial that the deleterious use of city property – for example, as parking lots for cops’ private cars – is a matter of racial justice. We agree!
  • Finally, a day after the Safe Streets community observed World Day of Remembrance for Victims of Road Violence, Mayor-elect Adams, City Council members and Safe Streets advocates joined a roundtable (oddly enough no press) on the carnage at Brooklyn City Hall. Now for some action, please.
