council thought the Lion Road junction would be
open some time last week but these pictures from last
Thursday afternoon suggest a degree of optimism.
For pedestrians the situation was definitely not improved, the exit from Lion Road which led to the pedestrian crossing - far left of Photo 1 - was blocked and the exit shown in Photo 3 led to nowhere in particular where crossing Broadway was a life in your hand job.
Presumably, when work on Lion Road ends, congestion in Broadway will not be improved and the man with the Stop Go board will be replaced by something more permanent.
