5 June - Bexley council’s right wing looks left

Civic Offices Civic Offices Civic OfficesThe new Civic Offices were refurbished by Mace, the same company that built the Shard at London Bridge and one can only hope that their attention to detail there was greater than in Watling Street. At the far right of the building, the Crayford side, you will find the vehicle entrance and security gate.

Naturally the gate is automated with video surveillance and a button to call for attention. The sophistication even extends to buttons at two levels, one suitable for the cab height of large lorries and another for car drivers and white van man.

Do you see anything wrong with that idea? Look carefully.

Yes it is on the wrong side of the road.

It’s mind boggling that so many Mace and council building inspectors failed to notice something so obviously wrong. It must be down to all those workers more used to left hand drive who are employed.

Note: I was alerted to this by someone whose reply address bounced my thanks back.
