Tooley Street SE1 - new roadworks 14 November 2011
New roadworks have gone up in Tooley Street, making the Western End of Tooley Street a one way, single file traffic corridor. Cyclists are jammed between inflexible metal hoardings and the vehicle traffic going westbound. Add in busses and large lorries, and its a very dangerous piece of road works.
Whilst a cycle lane has been left open on the Eastbound, it is only fenced on one side, meaning that pedestrians think (understandably) that it is part of the pavement. In addition the traffic lights and pedestrian crossings are ignored.
Be careful, I sadly suspect it won't be long before someone is hurt in the space between the inflexible metal hoardings and the frustrated and large motor vehicle traffic.
