And here’s how it’s changing lives…

It’s gifting lie ons

It’s giving the magical present of time

It’s influencing sartorial choices

It’s making people political

It’s giving people a reason to get out of the house

It’s making people believe

It’s vindicating public transport

It’s disposing of the rage

God bless us, everyone.

Rejoice: The Newlands Cross flyover is open today
