He's working from home today


Jason Hibbard (NCE 12 October) points out that public transport can be a slower way of getting to and from work.

Surely, the real issue that the recent fuel crisis brought home is: do we need to travel at all?

Automatic forwarding of telephone calls and e-mail means that the place of work is becoming increasingly irrelevant, at least for office work.

Managing a construction site from home remains a bigger challenge. Otherwise, as fuel becomes more expensive, it will be necessary to revert to the traditional solution: Live close to the place of work.
