  1. I see they have now drilled out a couple of samples in the cracking red concrete presumably to find out what is going wrong. 

    Now I'm no big city structural engineer but you would think this is something they should have done before laying a shitload more of the stuff.

  2. Well the pace has certainly picked up on the tram lines now. They are flying along. 

    I note they have left a bit in the middle though. It's almost as though they don't want the horse trams going any further this summer.

  3. Surely it is a good thing the trams have been running. Had they cancelled them we wouldnt have discovered the surface was unsuitable until the job was complete. Now they are only going to have to dig up and redo a short portion of the track. 

    Longworth has saved us a fortune!

    Walton's in it's latest set up was great. Their customer service was first class and they matched most others on price too. What a sad loss. 

    It was. I suspect for some the name was forever linked with the piss take prices that the previous owners were happy to charge prior to the arrival of Currys though.

  5. Surely it willbe happening fairly soon otherwise it wouldnt have made sense to clear out the tenants. Carshop have moved and the butty shop closed. Is Fentons still open there? 


  6. Dunno if the are closing or just moving (they use the shop on the other side of the street a lot for sales) but their current shop is up to let. 


  7. ATS closed now according to facebook. Also both the Game and Newsons premises in Stand Street up to let on Deanwood. 

    It's boom time for sure... 


  8. I bet they are mystified as to why hardly anyone parks there in a Sunday since they started charging. 

    Probably something to do with M&S not stocking enough sandwiches or something.

    I'm shocked really.  Surely there should have been at least another ten standing around watching?  Standards are slipping.

    The second crew assigned to fix the mess the first crew made of the job had probably gone for a spot of lunch.
