Cycliing along Grange Road
feels unpleasant and unsafe - both due to the speeding people and all the traffic calming measures which make those people have to swerve in towards you. I thought there was a consultation out about some super new protected cycle lane just outside the school/dual carriage way bit?
The whole of Grange Road
/Southwark Park seems an exercise in crap road/town planning - e.g. 20mph zones finishing just by a school - the bus lane going west to Tower Bridge Road
- the destruction of the vibrant street market (the Blue) in the 70s?- the modernisation of Thorburn Square
in the 60s?... Still love living in this part of se1 though.
Rant over - I need to wait for my first coffee of the day to kick in...
