Hazardous walking and cycling

The contractors who are building the new block of flats on Forest Road between Hurst Road E17 and Falmer Road are indifferent to the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. Yesterday pedestrians were directed to walk out into Forest Road and round a tarmac lorry. The cycle lane is blocked by contractor vehicles. That blue van should not have been parked in the cycle lane.

Crap like this has been going on for weeks at this site. Gunge on the footway and cycle lane (which has been going on since January), all kinds of obstruction for cyclists and pedestrians, no consideration for the safety of either group, and no provision of safety fencing.
