Kingston Road Closures and Lewisham Gridlock

There are two e-petitions currently being hosted by the London Borough of Kingston. They are both for and against the road closures in Albert, Victoria and Church Roads. The against vote is winning so far. See for details and to sign them.

Meanwhile today saw gridlock in Lewisham after an incident involving two police cars and another vehicle. Several people were taken to hospital and the gridlock extended over a wide area because all the alternative routes around the blockage have been closed. The accident occurred at the junction of Burnt Ash Hill and the South Circular causing several roads to be closed.

It has become apparent that neither police vehicles nor ambulances have keys to the bollards that are blocking many of the roads. Only fire engines may have them it seems.
