My girlfriend lives in Thrale Street
, which is the only route for cars travelling along Southwark Street
to turn right onto Southwark Bridge road and onto the bridge itself. Thrale Street
is unsuitable for this, being very narrow, and we regularly have the pleasure of watching lorries reverse/drive forward in a desperate manoeuvring attempt outside our bedroom window, before more often than not reversing back up and onto Southwark Street
. As you can imagine this is especially entertaining at 4am. The advent of sat. nav. systems has led to an increase in this - they show the route but don't indicate just how tight it is.
Anyway, my gilfriend has just written a letter to the council about this, but trying to pinpoint which of the councils' departments to send this to is a bit difficult. A few phone calls have only resulted in some (probably valid, but nonetheless unhelpful) buck passing by council officials, so I wondered if anyone on this forum had experienced anything similar and had had any joy from anyone within the council. Even the name of someone possibly connected who has been helpful would be a good start.
