Extra Traffic for Hard Cash

Travelling to central London yesterday morning (change at London Bridge - yawn) I saw this advert on the Southeastern train.

I can't be the only one who is outraged by the idea that a major business in Lewisham's congested town centre is actively promoting itself as a commuters' car park.

I doubt there's little that can be done to curtail what I consider to be an irresponsible action that could easily increase congestion and degrade air quality. Moreover it could encourage people who currently use the train from Kent to drive into Lewisham instead.

Of course, when our station finally reopens (and I used the stairs on saturday and friday so it can't be far off) we'll have our very own commuter parking back.
