Lorries everywhere on Friday morning in Fitzrovia’s narrow streets. This was the scene before 8 am with three building sites causing noise nuisance and later traffic chaos. Both UCL Howland Street and Fitzroy Place have been disturbing residents with vehicles arriving on site before they are supposed to and with work taking place outside agreed hours. We find it incredible that very large and experienced organisations are not capable of sticking to agreed operating procedures and arranging an orderly schedule of vehicle movements.
More than 25 heavy lorries were parked on Friday morning in Charlotte Street, Whitfield Street and Howland Street.
Lorries sometimes have to squeeze into narrow streets and mews like this vehicle from a site in Tottenham Mews. Again arriving before 8 am.
We have raised our concerns with Westminster and Camden councils and understand that action will be taken.
