To add insult to injury - the route out to Brockley via Honor Oak Park is now entirely blocked off, apparently for 12 weeks - ED is slowly being cut-off from the rest of the world. Does anyone in any council actually care at all how we are being treated? (The Honor Oak Park situation is at Lewisham's, not Southwark's door, of course, but we couldn't expect adjacent councils to ever discuss what's happening on their boundaries, could we?)
It is Forest Hill Road (actually Honor Oak Park Road up to Honor Oak Station - there is a road block (total) at the junction with Honor Oak Road (at Francis Cabrini School), down which all traffic is diverted (at least, it was there last night). Apparently for 12 weeks. There is a further imposed one way system just at the Devonshire Road junction - also technically blocked off though I barged my way through, which seems unrelated - probably water works. Effectively Brockley is no longer directly accessible from ED - you have to access via the South Circular/ Stanstead Road at the B128 junction, so far as I can see. Or possibly some sort of loop through via Brenchley Gardens. Yesterday at least it was a nightmare. I cannot imagine worse or less joined-up planning. The scheduled works shouldn't have started until the emergency works had been cleared, I'd have thought. Then at least you could divert found via Devonshire road, currently blocked.
Update on Honor Oak Park Road. The section of works by Devonshire Road now seem complete (was last night at 11.00). The lights and road blockage are still in, but I reckon they could be removed. The section outside Cabrini is now half open (one lane of traffic) but at 11.00 there were no lights to filter traffic driving each way at all (there had been at 5 that evening). So stil a nightmare, but no longer an impassible one. But this does not seem to be well managed. And it wouldn't be my chosen rush hour route if I could avoid it!
