Royal Borough Of Greenwich-Roadworks

I live in Eltham, which for my whole life (until now) has come under the ‘Greenwich Borough’.
We have now been granted royal status- we are now the ‘Royal Borough of Greenwich.’

It’s funny, places of interest like Eltham Palace and The Tudor Barn have now been highlighted.
Each and every local knows or has seen these places before.

As the impending Olympics approaches I guess the council want to make sure these tourist spots are easy to find.
They are both impressive places to visit but I can’t see them being regular haunts.
Although, having just completed a Tudor based novel I would love to dress up in a nice corset style dress.
Not sure I’d fit in one though.

Since we’ve been given royal status, we’ve seen a number of new signs pop up and the rent is on the rise.

But the one thing that’s really getting to me is the amount of roads and pavements that are being dug up.
Walking to and from the bus stop to work is like an obstacle course.
The council clearly haven’t thought about the elderly, the disabled or mum’s when introducing these monstrosities.

When one’s finished another pops up.
On some streets there’s more than one set of roadworks.
I’m getting really annoyed with seeing the signs that direct where I the pedestrian should walk.

But then again it seems like most of London is being dug up and re-done.
I know part of it is in preparation for the London Olympics, but it’s a complete joke.
In some places the same roads and pavements have been re-done numerous times.

Have our councils thought about pedestrians? I don’t think so.

I’d love to hear your thoughts?
