@zefrog yes - the effects seem to have been displaced to other roads

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to zefrog

@lizetta difference from last week is that E&C itself was at standstill then. New layout working but not fast enough to meet demand.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to lizetta

frogli Call me suspicious but I'm not convinced that new Elephant & Castle road layout is unrelated to fact that this bus hasn't moved in 40 mins!

As recently as 2011 TfL resisted calls to remove Elephant & Castle roundabout on grounds it wd "interfere with the traffic flow too greatly"

@mreys not saying it's ok - just different phenomenon from recent days during roadworks when junction itself has been gridlocked.

@RachaelParkman new layout not 100% finished - plus ppl probably moving slower thru junction while they get familiar with the changes

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to RachaelParkman

Traffic seems to be moving reasonably well through the E&C junction itself - it's just the capacity reduction means tailbacks elsewhere.
