Wonder if roads affected by diverted traffic get a reduction on their rates, business or council tax....two years is a long long time. London Bridge commuters travel in Southwark ..we live here. Not their fault I know but why do Southwark decide to close roads at the same time. And heaven help anyone who drives for a living.
I really hope the closure of the east bound lane will allow them to re-phase the traffic lights at the junction of Bermondsey st and tooley st. If they can give great time for the westbound traffic to turn left on to tooley st after it exits the tunnel, it may help to ease the jam that builds up daily down Bermondsey st itself.
We shall see, I imagine complete gridlock is the most likely outcome!
