Is it just me or does anyone else think that the recent resurfacing of South Street is the poorest & shoddiest piece of work I've seen for a long while. Outsourcing to jobs-worths again ?

It's a temporary surface whilst they build the new Riverside dwellings in Timberyard Lane.

Its a surface treatment (called Gripfibre) that looks bad at first, then gets better in the first few weeks.
Its difficult to plan and prepare as thoroughly as usual (for example when the other half of South Street was resurfaced last year) as the programme is carried out by specialists who are booked for a certain period of time and the treatment is very weather dependent; so any rain puts the whole programme back.
Just saying...

I especially admire the tenish asphalty bootprints along the paving slabs at the back of the Dorset Arms. A helpful guide for someone heading home perhaps?

They restricted parking on both Sunday and Monday. No one turned up on the Sunday. Hubby says they poured the new surface straight on top of the old, raising the road level and increasing the problem of water run off going onto pavements instead of drains. You can see the difference by the kerbs and the drains - at least two inches higher in some places. I know there was a problem with this at the bottleneck as well, resulting in the 15th c bookshop being flooded by run off. There's already a problem outside the old Thackerays during heavy rain, this isn't going to help.

If it is the final surface it looks terrible - cracked and pitted and kicking up lots of stones.

Another successful private sector job then, given I have no doubt the council has tendered it out to the cheapest bidder !

if tarmac is higher than the kerb then this must be corrected. kerbs are required to be higher than road surface.
