"Tideway Traffic Only" signs and the blocking off / reducing of Trinity Road from 3 to 2 lanes Mystery explained!

Hi all

I was puzzled why the top of Trinity Road where it meets Wandsworth roundabout had been altered from three to two lanes (with a huge cycle lane 10 meters wide?) and part of the slipway down from East Hill seemingly permanently separated off with crash barriers  with signs saying "Tideway Traffic Only".

Was this likely to be a "Tidal System" like the traffic used to be in the '70s over Albert bridge...Traffic flowing South to North in the morning rush hour and North to South in the evening?

No - It has been explained to me by the contractors that "Tideway is the name of the "Super Sewer" being built on the Thames South Bank from Chiswick to Barking and the sectioned off area as well as the third lane of Trinity Road has been sectioned off to allow Tideway lorries and equipment to wait and be stored to avoid congestion local roads... Mystery solved!
