Streetspace related barriers preventing refuse collection on Commercial St, Spitalfields, London E1 6LZ

Reported in the Streetspace Feedback category anonymously at 12:00, Tue 11 August 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2239173.

Your Covid-19 related barriers are preventing the safe collection of waste from residents and businesses. Traffic is too heavy for refuse collection vehicles to stop and allow operatives to collect waste. Footway's are wide enough in most places for pedestrians to pass while still observing social distancing measures. The street is becoming an eyesore and will only get worse as more and more business begin to open. Barriers have been erected without thought or consultation with cleansing teams. Please call to discuss (will next be available from 10th August). Would appreciate some co-operation. Thanks.
