Things have settled down a little following the switchover in traffic directions in Harlesden Town Centre. I know that there are still some grumbles about loading, rubbish collections and confused travellers, but I would suggest waiting a bit longer for the system to bed down before condemning it. Firstly, it is still very much under way. The area in front of Harlesden Methodist Church is currently blocked off for works, and a good deal of pavement remains to be done. I don't think it is really fair to judge the scheme until it is physically complete.
The loading arrangements, I expect shopkeepers will get in hand as they adjust to the new system. Similarly, as people get more used to the location of new bus stops and so on, there will be less muddle about where to go. I recall, the much more minor changes at the Wrottesley Road traffic lights I campaigned for took quite a while for people to get used to, but were generally welcomed eventually.
