Surbiton gateway to...?

13 years ago...

The city,the West End,the airports of LHR and LGW and the South...and motorway links.

We are a suburb,we are a "hubsub" we are not a gateway to the suburbs we are much more a "superhubsub" even.But lets just keep it to ourselves or house prices will soar and our children will find it difficult to afford to buy in the area.


Wow the gateway improves!

Sauntered down Victoria Road today trying to find some Manuka Honey(no luck all sold out),when i saw Mr Dance and Co reshaping the left turn at the bottom of Victoria Road at its junction with Hook Road.

At last a planner somewhere has seen the light or are TFL planning to use the bendy buses and this would help them negotiate the turn?

On enquiring of Mr Dances men, who used to be Irish,I find that they have no idea why the works are happening but are jolly glad as it is better than veg or fruit picking.Those roles are now for Bulgarians and Romanians as non EU seasonal labour has been banned.
So its going to be pick your own stuff from now on.
