Roadworks delay is disappointing
7:00am Thursday 14th February 2013 in Letters
I AM very disappointed, but not altogether surprised, to hear that the Broken Cross Bridge reopening will now not be until March at the earliest, some four weeks after it was supposed to re-open.
Many readers will, like myself, have been greatly inconvenienced by this closure, travelling many extra miles to work every day, to say nothing of how local businesses will have been affected.
The small road through Ford, which is being used as a rat run, is falling apart under the volume of unexpected traffic and lots of rain.
I found it very strange that no work at all took place over the two-week Christmas break, and don’t know why nothing happens at a weekend.
There is obviously no sense of urgency on behalf of the contractors to complete this work.
Are they going to be penalised for not completing on time? Is pressure being brought to bear on them by our MP as he said he would?
