Has anyone on Princess Street
or in Peronnet House noticed that to relieve congestion on the Elephant & Castle roundabout the no.68 bus is going to be rerouted down Princess Street
for a 6 month trial period?
This means that Peronnet House will now, effectively, be in the middle of a bus roundabout.
God knows it's noisy enough as it is without rerouting a bus down the narrow street with tight corners onto which all our bedrooms face.
I have my doubts about it being a trial period as some fairly major engineering work seems to be going onto widen the street at either end for corner-turning.
The flimsy A4 notice of works was attached to a lampost - I only noticed it the other day. Apparantly the date for petition has now passed - 28 June.
Is this just one of those things we have to lie down and take or does anyone have experience with dealing with these things - who to approach/how to go about it??
