The closure of Mint Street
has come about as a result of local residents, particularly those living on Mint Street
, and there are many, petitioning the local council for its closure. Steadily, the volume of traffic using Mint Street
had increased,turning it into a very busy rat run, used by those trying to avoid the traffic lights at the junction of Marshalsea Road
and Southwark Bridge Road
. The noise was also becoming a huge problem,day and night, with cars, vans and mororcycles beeping their horns and revving their engines, not to mention the amount of pedestrians who nearly got knocked down trying to cross the road, and yes there were many. All very well and good if you dont live on the street and just passing through but not for us residents who had to endure the problems that this traffic caused. We will be petitioning for permanent closure.
