When staying near the public swimming pool one year, we heard the clatter of manhole covers constantly, they shouldn't bother digging them out, keep them covered up !!!!!!!!

I have noticed today that they have lowered a lot of the kerbs around the areas of the new tarmac, with the bobbled slabs. Fingers crossed Sparky, no signs as yet though.

I think the bobbled slabs are an EU regulation to help visually impaired/blind people find appropriate places to cross roads

I have heard today that although they called a meeting and asked if residents wanted the work to start now or in October, in fact they had already decided and yes you've guessed they won't start until October.
