Road Works

Does anyone know what the roadworks are outside the Church are for, they have been going on for about 2 weeks?

Good Question Adrian. I've been asking that question for yonks, not about that particular one but all of them. I go out for a walk, turn a corner and there - a hole in the road. It wasn't there when I passed this way a few hours previously, I see no workmen about, it can be there for days, even weeks with nothing appearing to be going on. Then, suddenly it's gone. seemingly filled in by those invisible workers. But that's not true. I know this because I come across it again in another street. I'm convinced it's the same hole, moved around in the dead of night. It sometimes appears to be different but it's not, the dimensions may alter, there may be signs of a pipe or a cable lying at the bottom but that's a deliberate ruse to lull us into thinking that something important is being done. I wouldn't worry about it too much Adrian, it will only drive you as crazy as it has driven me over the years.

The road works have now been moved to outside the Town Hall, expect major delays during peak times

But is it the same hole? I think we should be told :lol:

I don't think it's the same hole because they dug the last one and buried it.

Anyway, getting out of Burns Lane is a bit of a nightmare with traffic backing up around Spencer's corner and up Sherwood Street from the traffic lights. :roll:

What's going on at the Town Hall junction? I came through the temporary traffic lights this evening, and all the hardware for the permanent traffic lights have gone! We're not getting a mini roundabout, are we?

I understand the work they're doing is to install new traffic signals, so I presume they're replacing the lights with new ones.
