Less than 6 months after Great Suffolk Street
was closed and traffic calming measures introduced, the Council has yet again closed the road for resurfacing.
I don't get it.
Why didn't they do all of this in one go the first time round?
Instead, residents & local businesses are being forced to suffer the consequences.
Residents have lost the use of the parking spaces between Borough High Road & Southwark Bridge Road
. The parking spaces outside of the local businesses have been taken up by contractors vehicles, thereby affecting passing trade for local shops, the pavement on one side has been closed off for pedestrians, and everyone who lives & works nearby or those who wish to visit anyone in the local area is being inconvenienced.
It's also causing traffic chaos for the part of Great Suffolk Street
which is still open to traffic.
Why can't Southwark Council
act sensibly for a change, and do everything in one go instead of closing a road several times within a space of a few months?
Bad planning Southwark (As per usual)
