I am Nick Christophorou of Short Cut Barber Shop on 760 Holloway Rd, London N19 3JF. I have been in business at my present location for nearly 20 years and have an established client base. However the recent totally unexpected, unforeseen road closure of Holloway Road due to Upper Holloway bridge replacement works has hit my trade like an unwelcome bomb. I am unable to display my sandwich board on the pavement as I have done for years & many clients assume that I am not open for business. TFL should have given us local businesses some sort of notice of these works and I am totally at odds as to why this disruption should inconvenience us for nearly 3 months. In this day and age a quarter of a year to solve a minor replacement is absolutely ridiculous!! Surely TFL owe local businesses an apology and indeed some form of compensation for loss of earnings. I certainly see no reduction in my business rates from Islington Council. I would like to know who at TFL is responsible, as I would like to submit a claim for compensation and would urge other local businesses effected to do likewise. It is time for TFL to be accountable for their actions. I urge other local businesses to join my campaign.
