With oncoming "pedestrian traffic" experiencing the same problem, you often have to go to the middle of the road to give way/get through, causing problems with cyclists having to avoid you, pushing them to the other side of the road, causing problems with traffic there. Domino effect I guess you could call it. Shame really, cause it's so nice to have a drink after work.Oh not the same place then... obviously a common problem in SE1!

If it's the same this evening I will call the bar and ask them to do something about it. I know that in the past StT said they would get a rope barrier to cope with the problem. But they weren't obliged to and so never did.
