Road ‘improvements’ chaos goes on…

20 June, 2019

• SOME weeks ago you published my observations on the “organised chaos” that has been the woefully managed “improvements” about Tottenham Court Road as part of the West End upgrade, (Any bets on Tottenham Court Road? March 14).

I hinted that we might place a bet on how long the virginal new surface might last. The answer being four weeks – with three sets of newly-laid slabs ripped up already and recently daubed markings on the remaining new footpath suggesting more to come.

And yet Camden Council have the audacity to ask long-suffering residents and businesses to vote for the scheme towards gaining a prestigious award, perhaps “short lived footpath of the year”. I should have placed that bet.
