LTN causes traffic chaos

It’s become quite fashionable to post images of congestion caused, not by too many cars, but by the LTN. This page will present date/time stamped photos of local streets at times when one might expect greatest congestion to occur: commuting, school runs, Saturday shopping. Now this isn’t to say that there is no congestion, just that it is nowhere near as bad as some suggest, AND hasn’t there always been jams around the triangle?

First of all, we must confess that it is not all good news. This next photo shows how the LTN has caused eeeeeeeeeeeenormous tail backs all the way to Cape Town:

Cape Town traffic jam: a butterfly flaps its wings…

Could local Tories be so fixated on what is going on in South Africa that they are out of touch with their own government’s flag ship policy? To such an extent that Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary warns against their ‘loud voices’. The lovely chap has just allocated a further £175m towards more active travel.
