Further to our story about the London Triathlon organisers, Transport for London or Tower Hamlets Council having not the slightest regard for the residents of our borough who need to do stuff on a Sunday so shutting roads while the Underground was also partially closed we sent our people out to get photographs of some of the roads yesterday.
Another quiet Sunday – idyllic for some but not for those who had plans and had no idea there was going to be a lock-in.
Roads closed for this? Some triathletes can be seen in the far distance left. Crowds of spectators? None.
Why is The Highway closed so a very small number of people can ride their bikes on it watched by nobody?
And by nobody we mean nobody.
Because of the road closures traffic jams like this one in East India Dock Road stretched all the way to Limehouse.
And back east the other way.
One of the main routes, the A1261, was closed for um, errr…. there might be someone on a bike down there. Is there?
Oh yes! There they are. Quite possibly three bikes.
Note to organisers: Any correspondence received which includes the phrase ‘lessons will be learned’ will be treated the same way you treat residents. With complete contempt.
