With road signs like this on the approach to Elephant & Castle no wonder drivers are confused about where to go. pic.twitter.com/D7s7joD4sa

@04smallmj The blue surfaces have been abolished. CS7 part resurfaced in black this week. Signage always pink.
@nlittlejohns Yes, that's what it means - but signs say one thing and markings another ...
@quillinanc Having been processing a lot of listings information for nearer Christmas it felt much later than 6 Dec!
@quillinanc Doh - you are quite right. The trouble of working on events listings on the web is that you forget what today's date is.

@alboreto queuing traffic on approaches, but on balance working ok. Not so sure Monday morning will be plain sailing though.
