A lot of traffic..

Breaking news, as it happens!

There's been constant traffic outside my front door since Thursday afternoon - Thursday evening it took me an hour and a half to drive back from Hampstead (a journey that usually takes five minutes). West End Lane was totally solid, like a car park.

Turns out there is a burst watermain on the A41 (Finchley Road) and the whole of North West London has ground to a standstill. Found this picture on Flickr, it's not mine, and if you look closely you can see the bulge under the road.

It's quite amazing. Even the bus lane is full, and not just of buses. I'm hoping they get it fixed soon, but there's something strangely retro about leasving my car standing and just walking. Could be the future...
