I wonder how long you have to wait in Green Dragon Lane before it's determined that you didn't drive "straight through"

I see what you mean.

Drive into GDL, pop your car into one of the blocks for a couple of minutes, then drive out the other end.

If you get issued with a PCN should be fairly easy to challenge it I would have thought.

9. Lionel Road South Closure. Following completion of the new football stadium and associated residential development, we are seeking to make permanent the existing closure (for construction access) of this road.


Expected Implementation Date: Autumn 2020

Interim review: N/A (permanent scheme)

Final review: N/A (permanent scheme)

Presumably there would be an exemption for TV trucks etc.?

In the wrong
Can anyone else see a "worried face" in that pic?

A4/M4 = Hairline

GP= Right Eye

LR = Left Eye

Green Dragon = Nose

Eyot = Frown/Smile


Or has this Lockdown finally driven me bonkers?
No but I am worried about you as you seem to have difficulty telling GP from LR:fishing:

That's a bit annoying as going upto the roundabout can add a lot of sitting in traffic if you're joining the westbound side of the A4

Yes, I've heard a few non-Bees fans who regularly drive along the A4 or M4 say they are annoyed the road won't re-open.

Depends where you want to get to and where you’ve parked for the new ground. When I drive I’ll probably continue to park South Ealing side of Ealing Road

I used to drive back to Windsor after each game, if you want to get on the M4 westbound you will now have to go all the way to Chiswick roundabout and sit in the traffic after Kew Bridge, or go up Ealing road and then along the A4 Eastbound, then go round the roundabout and back on yourself to the M4 ramp... Or go on the A4 to the Hayes junction near Heathrow. I guess it's not too big a deal, but a lot of cars used it which will now be added to the high street traffic.

Or park further north and further west. Park around Griffin Park for instance.

Around Griffin Park is too far west, past the M4 ramp... Around Griffin Park you either go along the high street to past Kew Bridge and left onto Lionel road south (or capital interchange way, or all the way to the chiswick roundabout) to the M4 ramp, or north up Ealing road, turn right at the A4, until the Chiswick roundabout and the go back on yourself to join the M4.

Don’t forget that around Griffin Park it’s CPZ Parking
Hence Mark's puzzled comment during today's game when a reporter went to move their car @ 15:30..... lol

Just take the next left towards the roundabout,actually quicker than Lionel Road.I am assuming it’s still open.
It seems that LBH are intent on funnelling all traffic around the roundabout,with Wellesley Road and Stile Hall Gardens also closed to through traffic.Should be fun during rush hour on a wet November evening.

We used to go up the high street and turn left down lionel road south, now we come out of windmill road the other end, chuck a right to chiswick rbout and onto the M4.

If its busy then last resort is up the A4 to jolly wagner rbout and join it there but with the 50mph average speed, may as well stay on the A4
