Readers of the ‘In SE1' April newsletter will be familiar with a new organisation called Better Bankside. They aim to improve Bankside through public and private funding and are calling on London SE1 forum members to help them. All you have to do is tell them what REALLY annoys you in the public area.
Better Bankside can't promise to right all the wrongs but are going to give their best shot at tackling ‘grot spots' such as abandoned rubbish, graffiti, missing street bulbs etc. So, if you walk past something grotty everyday thinking “I wish someone would fix that”, then tell Better Bankside by responding to this message, and maybe they can.
The bricklayers arms flyover is my biggest bugbear. It's unsightly and the pedestrian subways inconvenient and unpleasant. I, and many others jaywalk at the roundabout rather than use them. Why can't they demolish it and have the flyover traffic go underground? And traffic lights at the top of the old kent rd. And maybe the roundabout could be refashioned into some sort of appealling public space.
