Permeability, Waltham Forest style

So there I was, pedalling down Bramley Close E17 when – doh!

A road closure.

But as you can see, there simply wouldn’t be room for a cycle path.

This attractive pedestrian area has everything you’d expect from the London Borough of Waltham Forest public realm. Namely two lamp posts merrily blazing away in broad daylight. Plus graffiti. Plus a decayed sign which obviously once read NO BALL GAMES, together with some other indecipherable words.

That attractive flower bed really ties it all together, does it not?
