Re: Stupid new 4 way lights in Sydenham at Mayow junction

What I was trying to say, is that the lights are totally unnecessary IMO - traffic can get past the roadworks area on all four approaches. The very likely answer is probably Health & Safety, adequate distance separating the roadworkers from the traffic. It's also possible that the scale of the road...

Re: Stupid new 4 way lights in Sydenham at Mayow junction

What is the point of these? As far as I can see, in spite of the coned off areas, vehicles can still pass both ways on all 4 roads (Sydenham/Girton/Mayow). It's causing huge delays and (presumably) massive pollution in the area. Anyone know who's responsible? Oh so that's what it is. I noticed when...

Re: New ikea coming to Greenwich

There are only 2 good things about Ikea

1. The meatballs

2. The fun you can have trying to pronounce the sames of the items/furniture.
(Which reminds me of the Ikea or Cheese? Quiz http://mentalfloss.com/quizzes/14109 )

Re: Payless, Sydenham

The sooner the Payless Shop closes the better, it is a complete eyesore and am surprised they get any footfall at all! I wonder who the leaseholder is and if the lease is due to end? Or maybe are they looking to open something else, if so judging by how it looks now that is not a good omen. It's 1a...

The Escape Room is not a good idea - Just this weekend 5 people have died in Poland in an identical event , with a fire breaking out.
Terrible though that is, one sad accident does not mean the end to Escape Rooms.

Re: Who chose

The change was decided during the meeting before Christmas to try and brighten it up and make it more user friendly and welcoming than the previous grey to try and encourage more posters!

Re: Payless, Sydenham

Oddly it was closed most of the day today (Sat) and opened again in the late evening. It has been like that for the past few days. Then they will arrive in a white beamer at around 11pm, play loud music, shout and smoke outside. Literally almost nothing on the shelves now, wtf is going on? It could...

Re: Payless, Sydenham

Where *is* Payless? I looked up and down most of the high street the other day when I went along it, but didn't spot it. I have to say, those symptoms don't sound good, based on my experience elsewhere. Perhaps a word with yer friendly neighbourhood police person, if such exists? Opposite the Greyh...

Re: Washing machine

Progas on Sydenham High street will do that I am sure. My lettings agent use them for everything and they have always sorted everything in my flat, sure they can do this too.

Re: Payless, Sydenham

All I have noticed is that their bloody PayPoint machine for electricity top-up has been on the blink for months now! They are well laid-back about it, whenever I ask if it's fixed. I admire their chilled-out approach to retailing. There is probably a reason for that "chilled out" approach but I wi...

Car damage Lawrie Park Road

I parked my car on Lawrie Park Road at 1745 on Saturday (Outside number 15) and found it at 0745 this morning with scrapes all along the driver side, wing mirror completely hewn off with bits of it going up the street and hub cap scraped and broken. It's clearly been done by either something large o...

Re: What is happening on Sydenham Road right now?

I hope she is okay. Whilst the injury to an innocent bystander is awful, I am still quite glad they are doing something about the motorcyclists/moped riders that are speeding down sydenham road, quite often tooting their horns to tell people to get out of their way.
