GREENWICH Council has apologised to residents for failing to consult with them over residential roadworks.

No consultation was carried out before roadworks started on April 4 to narrow the entrances to Brinklow Crescent in Eltham.

Mother of two, Inderjit Gill, said: “We just don’t know why they’ve done it and what is even worse is that we weren’t consulted.

“Two cars used to be able to pass at the same time, but now that’s not possible.”

The 50-year-old added: “I don’t accept the council’s apology. It’s too late now and the damage has been done.”

Greenwich council has said the works were carried out to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

Paul Revel, a web editor who has lived on the road for almost 10 years said: “In all the time I’ve been living here, I have not witnessed any issues with pedestrian or cyclist safety.

“I would have liked to be told what was happening, especially as we ultimately pay for the road works.”

A spokesman for the council said: “Local residents should have been consulted on these proposals and we apologise that this usual process was not followed on this occasion. “

“Council officers are investigating how this error occurred so that we can ensure it does not happen again."
