The new Cycle Superhighway (north-south), Elephant & Castle roundabout removal, Tower Bridge Road
revamp - and, outside the postcode but affecting traffic inside it - the works at Aldgate; all conspire to make getting around hellish at the moment.
I'm sure it's all for the good, ultimately, but why must TfL allow all these works to go on at the same time?
Meanwhile, here on Leroy Street
, I'm hoping no one needs an emergency vehicle tonight, because the entire street is completely
blocked off at both ends; directly, at Tower Bridge Road
, where resurfacing is taking place as I type, and indirectly due to the closure of Old Kent Road
southbound at Bricklayers Arms. This is for works that TfL promised residents would take place Thursday to Sunday nights only. It's Wednesday night.
