Council traffic chiefs propose to plunge the De Vere Gardens area into traffic chaos. Kensington Road will see traffic restricted to one lane in each direction, with diversions around De Vere Gardens and Victoria Road. This is to enable the developer to erect a gantry over the road to support five-storey portacabins.
No consultation, no choice, no alternative. Just this missive sent out to councillors:
The works are due to start early next month, and finally removed in early 2013, yes, three years away!
No problem? Unless you live on top of it, or round the corner from it. Works traffic, endless congestion, and utter traffic chaos.
