Due to the roadworks down Blackfriars Road
at the moment, itís generally taking 35-40 minutes to go half a mile from The Crown
on Blackfriars Rd up to Blackfriars Bridge
during the morning peak hour. Bus Drivers donít always let you off in between stations, especially with roadworks around, so your best advised to get off at The Crown
and walk the 10-15 mins up to Blackfriars South and get back on a bus there. At the intersection of The Cut
, the lights are green for around 5-6 seconds at a time, which seems absurd but they just wouldnít be able to fit more than 1 car through there at a time without blocking off the intersection, with the way the traffic is backed up.
