Question

The Junction Residents Association have been complaining for a long time about satnav systems directing lorry drivers down Tubbs Road and Nightingale Road only to find that the barrier does not allow them to go any further. The lorry drivers then have to turn around or squeeze through the narrow restrictions and have been causing damage to people's front gardens and destroying walls. Can you please notify the satnav companies that this road is restricted for large vehicles?

Neither Tubbs Road nor Nightingale Road is part of the Transport for London Road Network. I suggest that the Residents Association's complaints be addressed to the manufacturers of Sat Nav systems, who are best placed to take action. I have asked TfL to write to you with the contact details of the main manufacturers so that you can take up the residents concerns directly.
