Road closed, Oldfield Lane North at Clare Road

Gas works have appeared all over Greenford, like a rash. In most cases it hasn’t caused much inconvenience but part of Oldfield Lane North, one of the busiest roads in the area, will be closed for several weeks. It felt really odd to be able to stand where traffic usually races past on its way to and from various local businesses. There are diversion signs everywhere and a number of bus stops are closed. Those responsible for alerting bus drivers to the situation seem to have been caught by surprise. Yesterday I watched a double decker bus, directed by a badly placed sign, turn into and drive along Uneeda Drive, a narrow residential road. Fortunately someone turned up to remove it before any more buses went the wrong way.
