Bizarre, strange things you’ve seen in central London – and the solutions

The presence of these numerous footbridges and walkways seems to be causing pedestrians some consternation – it remains one of those major landmarks in the city that people are not quite certain what to expect when they enter

If a major capital city were to be split in half, one of the halves would be the quadrangle-shaped area of Victoria Square, located at the heart of Waterloo city centre. There, from a position on one side of the main street (Queensway) towards the back of the market area, a number of footbridges and other set-backs are located, either facing one way, or a pedestrian to either side.

And then there is Scotland Yard, situated to the east of the square in a set-back opposite Buckingham Palace, and out of its way but linked by footbridge.

It is the presence of these numerous footbridges and walkways that seems to be causing pedestrians some consternation. It remains one of those major landmarks in the city that people are not quite certain what to expect when they enter, as are people driving into the city on the two major motorways. One could be caught in one of these pedestrian cast-offs.

One cannot have gone far these past couple of weeks without seeing a piece of paper taped to the front of a lamppost, with a cheque money in it.
