Upcoming Road Closure

Do you know about the impending high street road closure? I feel that the road signs are very poorly worded and that people are unaware of the implications. I feel that there should be more signs and that they should state that no vehicles will be able to drive to the high street from the bottle neck to the war memorial. What are your thoughts?

The signs made sense to me.

More signs needed. Many parts of England are ruined by the absence of road signs. Cut the public transport budget (is there one??) and throw more money at large brightly-coloured metal road signs.

I really hope I caught the sarcastic tone in that oneSHS. Local, if you don't understand the road signs and the articles in the "local" paper then it's the education system we need to be addressing more urgently. Dead simple.

Some of you posters are so rude and up your own botties. Local Resident was making a fair point and what do they get in return...abuse!

Sorry another local, it is not a fair point to demand bigger and more instructive signs when the ones put up are perfectly clear. Why should the council, or anyone else put up more signs than needs be. There are plenty of advertising, websites and phone numbers to obtain further information. They would hardly put up signs saying you can't drive from the bottle neck to the war memorial, as the first local wants, when that is the only way the traffic will be flowing.

I've not even seen any signs. Whens the high street closing then?

Temporary signs are used to block pavements and so discourage people from walking. More signs to advertise this street closure would use up more (narrow poorly-maintained) pavement space and so eventually the High Street would be inaccessible to both vehicles and pedestrians. Not good for the traders.

'ere be monsters - I have it from a reliable source (well, a local cabbie) that the high street is due to close next week, and that is why they're rushing to finish the current roadworks taking place down by the Elephant and Castle. Apparently you can come down the high street but now up, meaning traffic up to the prison will have to re-route up past the E&C.

This does look like a nasty variant, and not just because of Boris Johnsons face above.
