Perhaps once SH has sorted out the post, he'll have a look at another little issue. Living just off Falmouth Road
, all the concrete blocks that keep the traffic on Great Dover St and into the congestion charges have to date been an irritation rather than anything else - used to wonder how "they" had the right to block our access, seemingly without time limit or any intention of doing permanent works.
Unfortunately, last weekend, we had to call an ambulance for my sister. Even more unfortunately, because of all the lovely concrete blocks - which, because they are not permanent, are not marked on any maps - it took the ambo's 45 mins to get to our flat.
Nothing against the ambulance staff - they were incredibly frustrated & commented on the dangers of it - just makes you wonder if £5 a few times over is worth the risk of emergency services not getting through? Fortunately, Kate is fine - but it could have been a very different story!
