Perhaps they should have a go at sorting out Ireland's Lane as well. We could run a book on which will be finished first.
I'm beginning to think the whole town has been bought by some company that trains people in how to dig up roads, and it's all for practice.

Don't make excuses for them. They wouldn't have to do it 'really quick' if they did it at the right speed in the first place.

Irelands Lane is shut due to renovations at St Pancras church, not because there's anything wrong with the road.

Damned inconvenient of them really. You'd've thought a quick prayer could have got it sorted in a fraction of the time.

BUT there is hoarding that defines the limit which stops at the kerbside so the road is shut - WHY? - this has put over a mile on every trip I make into town for a take-away of an evening - at what carbon cost to the world if everyone is doing the same increased mileage in their 4x4 and MPV etc?
only marginally worse was the 6 months Offham Road at the top of landport - DISGUSTING management - diesel generatot for lights going 24/7 and i NEVER once saw a worker at that site NEVER (only th old boy topping up the gennie - come on Council monitor your bl00dy contractors for Christ's sake - (if not the tax-payers!!!)

I'd sort of assumed there were some kind of essential works going on, but I gather they're just building a church hall or similar.
I wonder how many of us would be able to have a road closed for months to facilitate building works? Just shows how friends in high places help!
It has removed a most useful short cut for me, too.

Fire at St Pancras, eh? Not someone taking the bonfire prayer too literally, I hope?

They're building a new hall, having sold off the Canon O'Donnel centre which was their old one. The fire was only last week but will doubtless extend the renovation period by months.
The Offam Road stuff was to fix a leaky gas pipe so was fairly essential, I guess they decided that if one went they might all go, hence digging up the Avenue and Bradford Road too.
