A Mother Of All Traffic Jams

I took this picture from the front on a 19 bus, as I tried to get from Piccadilly to Islington.

 

The bus was turned round, as it was going nowhere, so I got on a 38, which then promptly overheated, but at least as it was a 38, there was another behind.

Traffic everywhere and nothing moving.

Traffic everywhere and nothing moving.

Traffic everywhere and nothing moving. My bus journey took over an hour.

So what was causing the slow progress? I think it was a mixture of works for services and the Cycle Superhighway.

It was obviously going on all day, as a visitor later in the afternoon complained of similar problems. A friend visiting London also had problems.

You might ask, why I didn’t take the Underground! I needed to get to Angel and as the Victorian designed the Northern and Central Lines so that they didn’t go near Piccadilly. Buses are the only way unless you want to do some tortuous walking in an Underground interchange.
