Reconstructing London

The street outside our office is a busy place at the moment. There are no less than 3 building projects happening! Down towards Piccadilly an old 60s office block is being refurbished (or something!). The noise is quite amazing sometimes... as are the vibrations which can be seen to shake unsecured items sitting on my desk! The first time we felt them (yes, sometimes you can feel them) we though an earth quake was happening! Now there are two more sets of scaffolding toward the Berkeley Square end of the street. These are managing to cause traffic jams with their deliveries and rubbish lorries and all sorts. Several times today the traffic has ceased to move up and down the street and taxi drivers have sat and sounded their horns!
