I agree- when the lights aren't working (and drivers have realised rather than just sitting there), everything moves through quite fast. There are enough gaps in the traffic on Sydenham Road for the traffic in Mayow Road to get out. But maybe it's the pedestrian crossing that's more important? Talki...

It can be very difficult to work out what you are being charged. If you check your journey history online, it will show the fare charged in one column, and the balance in the next. However, if the fare has been capped, the fare actually charged can be lower than the fare shown - the refund is reflec...

Looks like they are working again now. That's the third time in six weeks this has happened. What bothers me most is that tfl and/or the maintenance company don't do anything to let drivers know what is going on. I reported it this morning at about 9am. At 1pm I went past - lights still on red, big ...

They were gone again this morning. Long tail backs and confusion. I report it to tfl every time it happens, but they clearly haven't found a permanent fix. I don't know if there is anyone local I can raise this with - Lewisham say it is the responsibility of tfl.

It's there to protect the birds, actually. They fly in under the roof and get stuck. The recording is of a distress call, so the idea is to keep the birds away from the building.

I joined the FB group but I don't see updates on my homepage, or get email updates. I wonder if this is because you post updates as yourself, rather than with the group identity. Not being your 'friend' on FB, I won't get these updates.

I think lots of people in the City will start using the ELL instead of shleping down to London Bridge. My husband works at Liverpool Streetand is getting the ELL from Shoreditch. Already much quicker for him even with having to change at New Cross. Once the ELL opens at our end I don't think he'll e...

Mayow Road Traffic Lights

Once again the traffic lights at the end of Mayow Road were stuck on red this morning. This happened a few months ago, and a few years ago it was happening every few months or so. I thought they had it sorted, but apparently not. I reported it to TFL this morning. They are supposed to alert Lewisham...

It may be worth having your sleep disrupted for one night if the repairs are done properly. Many potholes were given temporary patches when the snow cleared in February, but that just made things worse. Within a week, the repairs opened up and there was new rubble and stones all over the road to add...

Right, well I won't encourage him then! I spoke to the vets on Mayow Road and they said that if you find a stray cat and you manage to catch it, you can take it to any vet. They will check to see if it is id-chipped. If not they will arrange for it to be re-homed. So I'm keeping one of our cat carri...

Are you missing a grey and white cat?

There has been a large grey and white fluffy cat hanging around in our garden since Wednesday (20/01/10). It is miaowing a lot and has managed to get into our house during the night (through our catflap). I haven't seen it much during the day so haven't been able to check if it has a collar. It does...
