ESCC Contractors

A big thank you goes out to ESCC highway contractors.
Last week you placed a "no road markings" sign on the Offham road/Neville Road junction completely blocking the view down the hill whilst pulling out of Offham Road.
This week you're resurfacing the Offham Road between the hours of 9:30am and 4pm, but for some reason the contractors are turning up around 7:45 and sitting in their vans for 1 hour 45 minutes (presumably they are contracted to work between 8 and 4).
They parked in a big long line along the road, blocking King Henrys road and Landport Junctions, I saw 2 near miisses in the space of a minute whilst waiting to pull out, meanwhile the contractors sat in their vans drinking tea and coffee.

Clearly you've never contacted the council...
Emailing ESCC would of resulted in the first few emails being ignored, followed by a few emails of "please hold on we're trying to find the relevant person", followed by a long wait as "the right person" only works in the office 1 afternoon a week and is currently on a 6 weeks training course followed by a two week Christmas break and four week holiday in the new year...

It is government by stealth because the measures are so constitutionally unsound, they can not be honest about them. The only... more
I like BONFIRE NIGHT, and of course all the out-meetings which go on around this time - and the loud bang at the crack of dawn!
