21 September - If you are dying of thirst waiting for jobs to be completed, relief is in sight

Felixstowe Road, Abbey Wood
Completion of the rebuilding of Felixstowe Road next to Abbey Wood station is already overdue and there is a very long way to go yet.

Felixstowe Road Felixstowe Road Felixstowe RoadPresumably to make amends the contractors have opened the road to light traffic. Residents only the sign says but there are none on the closed section.

It’s a helpful gesture but traffic coming through from the eastern side of Harrow Manorway are today met by the road block which is FL68 AFK.

The only way back is to reverse 150 yards down a narrow track. One must hope that there is not a line of traffic all trying to do the same thing.

Greenwich Council does not much care about illegal perking.

Gayton Road, Abbey Wood

Gayton Road has yet to benefit from the promised station drop off points or the trees but if you find the Abbey Arms closed, relief is at hand. Thames Water’s latest hole in the ground has sprouted a drinking fountain.

I have resisted the temptation to Photoshop the words MAYOR OF LONDON into DRIP OF LONDON.
