Traffic Chaos At Vauxhall

Rarely do I post in the Forum space which is an area I see as mainly for members to have a voice, but I am compelled to point out the fact that the powers that be have decided in their infinite wisdom to close Vauxhall Bridge for TWO MONTHS! Residents near Battersea Bridge the next thames crossing along the river were NOT informed in any way shape or form about the planned works which have meant absolute grid lock until around 9 Pm every evening. There are signs near Hyde Park corner and obviously around the Vauxhall area, but apart from those there are none in the area that has been most affected by the 'planned works'. Why the fuck didn't they do them during lock down? It beggars belief, perhaps they are auditioning to become part of West Ham's future planning department for the club, they would fit in really well!

When I was a nipper my dear old dad, who was an engineer at hawker sidley, helped me customise my bike in to a 'chopper', complete with additional reverse forks on the front and a 3 foot 6 inchn back rest with a cross on the top! The teachers at my grammar school absolutely hated it and tried to ban it on safety grounds, but failed.
