LONDON IN THE SPRING
London looks lovely this morning in the spring sunlight.
I had to deliver to an office building close to Battersea power station before 8am which necessitated a 5.20am start which was not welcome, and the car temperature gauge showed that outside it was just four degrees.
Driving in along the A13, I am always surprised by the amount of traffic around that time of day, but the new 50 mile and hour average speed limit keeps the traffic moving around and I arrived at Westminster just after six thirty. From there to the delivery address was against the flow of traffic and took just a quarter of an hour.
It is good to see the number of commuters who now choose to use cycles rather than cars or public transport. At one set of lights there must have been more than forty cyclists waiting to cross and use the now well established blue cycle lanes which in general are respected by car, bus and taxi drivers.
Now I am on the way back to Basildon to collect the rest of the job which is needed at Northacre today but still in production.
