Cleveland Bridge closure imminent
Cleveland Bridge closes for 3 months from midnight tonight for vehicles. For local residents getting south is circuitous and likely to be very slow unless you can start in time to beat the Waitrose busgate which is operational during the shopping day from 10am to 6pm.
More detail is here.
London Road is likely to get very snarled up, so Camden Road is likely to get busier, even though the Council’s modelling suggests not – we’ll have to wait and see. As mitigation there is signage all along the London Road stating that all the side roads are “No through traffic – local access access only”.
We most recently covered this story a couple of weeks ago here. It’ll be particularly acute next week as there are waterworks on the road too!
We’re looking for anyone who could help the committee count vehicles at a set time each day for 10 minutes. We can build a case for more emergency measures if our streets get intolerably congested. Please simply reply to this post if you can consider assisting and we’ll be in touch.
