Hi - first post. Been lurking for a while.
I realise Southwark Bridge itself is stretching the bounds of SE1, but it impacts on Southwark Bridge Road
Has anyone else noticed the farcical traffic situation on Southwark Bridge of a morning, while the works are going on? The traffic is one lane. But while there is a traffic light on the SE1 end, there isn't one at the City end. So when volume is quite high, two flows meet in the middle of the one lane, and nobody goes anywhere. It's the same every morning at the moment. The other day i saw an ambulance stuck going south - one of the paramedics had to get out, walk up the opposing lines of traffic, tell all the northbound traffic to reverse back to SBR, then waved through the southbound traffic etc etc. Nonsense.
Does anyone know who an appropriate person/body to contact about this would be?
