This morning (Thurs 12th July) the whole of South East London is gridlocked.
WHY YOU MIGHT ASK ?
Has there been a serious accident? Have they found another crack in a bridge or a hole in the road?
Transport for London have rephased all of the traffic lights because “traffic flow will be different during the Olympics”.
These measures this morning created 8 mile tailbacks on the major roads around South East London.
TfL are the same people that will be adjusting traffic flow in London when all of the Zil Lanes are opened.
They tell us that their “Traffic Model”, a computer prediction to you and me will cause everything to run without any problems.
If the G4S fiasco, the M4 fiasco, the immigration delays at Heathrow or the new traffic light phasing in SE London are anything to go by…
MAY THE LORD HAVE MERCY UPON US ALL!
