Alexandra road - improving the streetscape
The Walthamizing of this road is now almost complete. The Waltham Forest check-list of excellence has been followed to the letter.
Addition of pavement parking : Check
No separation between pavement and parking bays thus allowing sloppy parking to block footway : Check
No redeeming features to alleviate the wall to wall tarmac and parking bays : Check
Narrow cycle way : Check
Cycle way running right up against parking bays to facilitate dooring : Check
Cycle markings to place the cyclist in the most dangerous part of the road, and to allow motorists to close pass : Check
Billboards advertising Waltham Forests latest regeneration success : Check.
Another triumph for the highway and environment department of Waltham Forest.
