The the main roads by Tower Bridge are okay, but the smaller residential streets are still slippy.
I never understand why Londoners don't get a spade out and clear off the streets themselves rather than moan about the council not clearing every square inch of ice away (Not complaining about you Pops btw; more like the whingers in my office). This sprinkling of snow in the south east is nothing compared to what happens elsewhere. I'm getting a little fed up getting emails from people from work sending me pictures of their cars covered in snow (with a perfectly clear road in the background) and claiming they are snowed in :-/ Homeowners and shop keepers are quite happy to clear off their own pavements and go about their business elsewhere in the country. One thing the councils should do better in London through is to put salt bins on the streets.
20 minutes with a broomhandle and some chunky boots, and path from TBR my front door was perfectly fine.
Clearing snow and ice from pavements yourself There's no law stopping you from clearing snow and ice on the pavement outside your home or from public spaces. It's unlikely you'll be sued or held legally responsible for any injuries on the path if you have cleared it carefully. Follow the snow code when clearing snow and ice safely.
Tower Bridge Road end of Abbey Street still all icy as hasn't been gritted at all.
If there was a salt bin I wouldn't mind chucking a bit about altough not sure about shovelling snow. I put cheap salt down along our communal balcony walkway and that cleared it.But I don't fancy paying out for a street's worth of salt.
A new grit bin appeared on the corner of Snowsfields and Kipling Street in preparation. I thought the same was happening all over, but then I haven't seen any others.
It's all slush where I've been today, including Tooting.
I managed to use a piece of hardboard to clear the fresh snow on Monday, but if you don't get in early forget it - last nights rain has cleared most of the snow, but watch out for freezing Sunday night.
