I can see a traffic jam straight up ahead. Popped out to the shops this morning and saw that they (it's always they) are putting up traffic lights on the main road so that cars can turn left coming off the Chain Bridge.
Supposedly it will help traffic and parking problems simultaneously by feeding cars directly into the underground car park nearby, but I'm doubtful. There's another underground carpark about 20 meters up on the same road as the new lights and it never looks busy. I have a feeling it's just going to choke that main artery and make our own street into a rat run. We'll have to wait and see.
With all that equipment being shuffled about on the main road and workmen wandering around, it's a good job they closed off the street. Oh wait, they didn't.
