    Is this fixing the drainage problem that RBK created when they remodelled this junction?

    Every time there’s any significant rainfall, the pedestrian crossing at the southern side of the Lamberts Road / Ewell Road junction floods, and is totally unusable. Pedestrains are forced to walk into the middle of the four lane road to cross.

    Its downright dangerous, especially as its next door to a school, and should never have been allowed to happen.

    Whoever allegedly managed this project should be shown the door – it came in about two years too late, was vastly overbudget and the net result is a new pedestrian crossing that can only be used when its dry.

    Was the project manager the same person who ordered a bin to be placed across the whole width of the footpath alongside the new layby at the bottom of St Marks Hill. If you want to buy a parking ticket, you have to walk around the bin, onto the road, to get to the machine.

    Maybe RBK are advocates of this new shared space strategy, forcing pedestrains and motorists to share the road.
