Road Construction

There's a joke we tell in Canada:  we have two seasons-- winter and construction.  And so it goes.  Every year, here in London, beginning in mid-April and lasting through November, the city becomes mired in road work.  Sometimes road construction pops up with no warning and you have to find a new way to get to work.

Well, this year, we at the Secrets of Radar Museum get the equivalent of the backhoe parked at the end of the street.  As of today, May 5th, Western Counties Road, which is the main access used to enter the Westminster Ponds ESA where we're located, is closed for construction.  There is an alternate entrance to Parkwood Hospital and the Ponds (and therefore the Museum, as well) closer to Wellington off Commissioners.  There may also be an entrance off of Wellington, just north of the Tourism London office, but we recommend the alternate Commissioner's entrance.
