Must have been a really scenic route,
Cresswell is near Blythe Bridge.
Unless you were in Creswell?
Pedant! Ok Creswell, wasn't too sure of the spelling if i'm honest.
Yes, there's only one s in Creswell; a bit like there's only one f in Cannock.
Scout - anonymous traffic study equipment
Brownies - lard
Beavers - ooh matron
They are a sound monitoring system to record the screams/cursing as pedestrians get soaked by traffic flying through that lake that appears each time it rains.
Pennycroft lights are basically impassable - just don't bother trying.
Dug up to connect the Granny Ghetto, I presume.
Also, particularly out of town, where the fog is thicker and speeds higher, there is a remarkable percentage of drivers still "saving their batteries"...
I see that a good deal of the chippings that were put down along Sandon Road have now come off going away from the Shell garage sheep dip towards Beaconside.
Wonder if the rate payer had a guarantee written into the contract ?
It's actually a special self-gritting road surface, I (don't) believe.
It is a truly 'special' thing to spend that amount of money to make things worse. Not only did they block a good bit of the perforated kerbing, but the new glossy tar skid-pans, especially at the Henry Street junction, will surely provoke some excitement?
You have to admit that Highways have a gift at this sort of thing.
Even if it was done at no cost, it would have been better left as it was.
The rebuilding of Sandon Road was done to a very high standard (much to my surprise, I'll admit).
It is shameful to see it treated like this.
Had a closer look today and before long the complete length of that road will need to be redone & yes those shiny areas on the bend could well have a 2 wheeler going down.
Cannot believe in this day & age they still use this micky mouse method to surface the roads.
According to the BBC world service the M6 is closed at Stafford Creswell roadworks
I wonder if any of the myriad organisations that extort money from us has ever considered actually taking some positive action about the bizarre 'flume' on Gaol Square?
Like the council, maybe? The big bucks chief should be made to stand by that puddle.
I wonder how many claims (if any) are made each year by pedestrians getting soaked ?
So, we've had road sweeper trundling up and down Sandon Road today, trying to remove most* of the loose gravel that has piled up at the sides of the road.
Maybe they're going to try to glue some of it back onto the skid-pans?
Or, maybe not.
* Except where parked cars were obstructing it and whatever proportion it knocked into the drains..
Severn Trent causing long delays on the A34 during rush hour tonight, digging up the road outside the Co-Op. Travelling Northbound and as a direct result of this, I was forced to take a short-cut up Alliance Street...
Is that allowed now?
Midlands News ... Shrops council reportedly paying £1000 per day to 'pothole consultant'. How could anyone be expected to live on that pittance? No wonder the roads are in such a state.
It's highly unlikely any claim would be paid.
