Road closure

From the archives.

What is wrong with this road closure, introduced five years ago on a recommended cycle route? (Between Salop Road and Essex Road E17.)

The London Borough of Waltham Forest's highway engineers saw nothing wrong with it, and neither did the local ward councillors.

But in due course an ungrateful cyclist complained to the local paper and the Council reluctantly removed the two giant wedges of concrete.

When a Panzer division sweeps across Walthamstow, you will know who to blame for leaving the local community defenceless against surprise tank attack.
