I live in Marlborough Road. I was driving to work along Colliers Wood HIgh Street yesterday when I heard an ambulance siren behind me. I had previously imagined it might be impossible to let one past given the crazy changes that have been made to the road. Now I know it is impossible. I was furious and frustrated, God knows how drivers, paramedics and patients feel. In particular the posts on the outside of the bicycle lanes mean that the road has been narrowed to the extent that you simply can't get out of the way to let the emergency services past.
Of course it’s important to protect cyclists @thetimes but also babies in pushchairs, disabled people, local business & ppl needing an ambulance @StGeorgesTrust. Huge problems on #ColliersWoodHighSt after @TfL Transport Dept works. Take a look! pic.twitter.com/wZpJlikzyF— Siobhain McDonagh MP (@Siobhain_Mc) August 29, 2020
