Well T. the C., I guess that eventually BHS will return to some semblance of what passes for normality.
Naturally, as SE1 residents this thoroughfare is of importance to all of you.
But from where I sit, the hell that is London's roadworks will probably never be over.
Take a trip across the river and check out the fiasco that is The City at the moment.
Cornhill closed until mid July.
City road closed southbound from South Place until September.
Old Broad St., open now, but closed whenever they feel like it.
Queen Victoria St. at Blackfriars, down to one lane for the foreseeable future.
The Aldgate one-way system, almost permanently dug up. And don't get me started on the car park that is Trafalgar Square, Cockspur St. and Pall Mall East while St. James St., Pall Mall, and possibly Haymarket are converted to two way traffic.
If any of you have 40 - 45 minutes of spare time, take a leisurely crawl from Hyde Park Corner to Piccadilly Circus, it must be all of 900 metres to 1 km.
