At rush hour, the traffic on TBR has been stretched back to the Bricklayers Arms most of this week. It has blocked the roundabout and made the Eastbound New Kent Road
a bus parking zone. It has also severely impacted the frequency of the buses heading back into town, causing overcrowding and delays.
And despite this, no traffic police, no changing of the traffic lights to allow traffic to reach the Old Kent Road
and no decision by TfL to allow the buses to skip the Bricklayers Arms stops and use the flyover instead.
Just a huge queue of traffic waiting to join the long tailback on Tower Bridge Road
