These fecking imbeciles who supposedly “run” our transportation, have they no brains at all.
Traffic chaos today, signs everywhere proclaiming the new St James 2 way system to be active from the 3rd or 4th of July, but it looks completely unfinished, with screens and roadwork barriers still all over the place so everyone was going straight on down Piccadilly, well almost everyone.
Then they’d closed Orange st so you couldn’t get from Haymarket to Covent Garden, then they’d closed Cockspur st, so no traffic other than buses using the bus lane could get through to Trafalgar sq. So all Haymarket traffic had to turn right onto Pall Mall. No problem when its a 4 lane 1 way road. Oh wait, it isn’t anymore, its now a 2 lane road. So then the traffic had to negotiate Pall Mall and try to get back up Regent st to Shaftesbury Avenue, but the top of Regent st by Picaddilly Circus is blocked by the tailbacks from Haymarket.
Come down Charing cross rd to get on to Northumberland Avenue or Whitehall, sorry, closed at St Martins Place, must turn left onto the Strand, the very direction most of the damn traffic has just come from.
Must have been a pretty severe accident to cause such chaos and so many road closures you might think, maybe a terrorist incident.
Nope, its the fecking premiere of Harry Potter, what a bloody farce. Must have cost businesses thousands today, could they not hold the bloody premiere on a Saturday night, or even in Hyde park where its not gonna cause chaos for thousands of people trying to get around.
Phew, rant over, had to get that off my chest.
