Stupid busses only restriction.

I drove through the restriction on my way to collect something I had left in a rental van on rowdell road. I followed my sat nav back the way I had came and accidently drove back through the same restriction. I needed to get to northolt station and cant see why someone has blocked off all the roads meaning I would have to drive all the way through to the A40 and onto the TARGET ROUNDABOUT in order to get just beyond the restriction. UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. I got a fine for it as well. the signage is not clear saying there is a bus gate which there isn't there also a crossing in the middle of it as well one side the speed limit is 20mph the other it is 30mph - its too much information to take in and I made a mistake. no wonder the traffic is so bad around this area when people cant get from a to be without being sent all round the houses! I am surprised residents haven't had it removed if you lived the other side of the restriction you would have to go miles out of your way to go Eastcote for example. its disgusting the way they just make money out of people who pay their road tax and cant use the roads!
