Also People here are forgetting people need to drive alone this road if you are:
Driving kids to/from schools (shop after to fill the fridge for the children on their return ect) Rush hours in use
Tradesmen (they have heavy tools/ladders materials) rush hours in use can't use public transport ect
Local doctors in cars (this is bad as people really need them I'd think, 100's and 100's of people live on that st)
Palliative health workers (same as above)
The elderly or people driving the elderly around (they simply cannot use local transport, body is knackered ect)
Builders (they need cars/vans/trucks so they can do their work and a service your property)
Local delivery drivers (your Deliverroo/Domino's delivery will arrive later and colder, and will have a knock on affect for the next customer)
Social workers (they drive everywere as too many destinations in one day and pushed to the limits)
People simply driving from other parts of London to another and trying to stay off main routes to save time, money, and pollution? Why should they be forced to joined conjested roads when they are trying to avoid?
Could name many more, but these are the type of car users have no choice, public transport can't facilitate them, that's why they drive, and using the alternative routes just adds time wasted in already congested routes, adds pollution, and traffic and slows everything down, which add more pollution...knocked on affects....
So what do people say here in favor of the closure, or try and say there are other ways, if this is the reality of the problem with this road closure has caused, and in favor, giving the reasons above? How does one fix the problem of drivers needing to drive, to survive, to create income, and care for the people in need, without increasing traffic in other area's which is unneeded in the first place?
Please read the above article too, will help in the understanding of this poor situation.
