So the buses will be stopping in single lane traffic ? Also there is very dangerous dropped kerbs on either side of the bike lane.
The bike lane crosess the entrance to MCH, but when cars exit in and out of the building they have to approach the road in order to barge into the tailback. However they then become stationary across the bike lane. If the vehicle did not do this and waited back then no one would ever let them as they are not apparent.
Then outside weatherspoons we have a ridiculous mass of paving.
The traffic from NC approaching the northern rounadbout has a single lane, which then becomes two. However, trying to get two vehicles next to each other is not easy. Then the odd bit is as the traffic moves and come to the first mid roundabout junction only about 5m on the builders have made a mistake and narrowed the lanes, so a bus for exaple and a car cannot go through at the same time as there is not enough room.
I wrote an email to Patrick Kelly, no repsonse / acknowledgement.

It means we have to forge through the traffic on NC, turn up Southwark Bridge Road, go up Borough Road to St George's Circus, and back down London Road in order to go down OKR. We can't even go down Harper Road and round the back that way...it's totally absurd. And all be cause of the ridiculous piazzafication of the area outside MCH which we don't need. The traffic on NC was always very benign and sporadic, and getting in and out of MCH was never a problem. Now it's a real hazard.
