no idea how to reply to your post and link what you said but to paraphrase, you said driving round walthamstow is awful, with closures to rat runs and traffic calming being put in.
Isn't it a bit ironic that you are on a cycling forum complaining about a borough that is promoting cycling and installing measures to encourage more people to get out of their cars and cycle? are you lost mate?
i see from your previous posts you live in leytonstone...this makes sense. i'm not sure why everyone living in leytonstone moans about walthamstow, it's like they have a complex being the poorer relations. i guess its good for bombing up and down the highstreet in your car with all the other boy racers/drug dealers.
you should stick to cycling and not driving...i would recommend it
