Speaking of piecemeal schemes, Croydon council has come up with a hilarious wheeze to put an LTN in near Crystal Palace that puts all traffic from a network of smaller roads onto a neighboring single Bromley council road. Some people seem to be having a great time, but to go full NIMBY it means my road looks like the below every morning, with queues building up to turn onto the Church road (the triangle). The grind of traffic has become constant pretty much all day from the dribble it was previously. There's also some shocking speeding sometimes.
This runs along with the really heavy traffic on the Triangle generally, which is exacerbated by the fact a motorist (who had a seizure) demolished a shopfront meaning we've had temporary traffic lights for months.
I wish Bromley and Croydon councils had bothered to speak about it and come up with something joined up - there is talk of legal action from Bromley apparently.
