I was literally just going to say this. I'm going for 24th September. 

32nd of gooseberry.  Three squiggles after the prom but four hefferflump years before Pulrose Bridge, and a mere snuggethwack before Richmond hill is done.

Yes.  I should have stated one way.

The point still stands though.  Any moaning about the traffic implications is clearly being done by people who don't use the routes.

 

Oh look...again...

As I mentioned the other week the crossing outside Sam Webbs was to be lifted . Started today . Thats every crossing now I believe has been lifted at least once . Lessons have been learned ?!! Clearly not .

How f*cking heavy is a brick pavior that you need a mechanical excavator to lift them up, or is that to level the sand beneath it. Not a single hand tool in sight, like  a level, a mallet or a spade. Not even an attempt to stack the bricks and two men to watch? You can tell it's only public money eh?

Excuse me, but in todays health and safety regime, One banks man, a banksman for the banksman, to the side I would expect a health and safety  liaison officer, two foremen, a DOI works inspector and his manager, if anything there are not enough people to carry out this procedure. Tim Baker is right, this job has taken so long because of labour shortage.

You missed out Tim Baker in the background doing an interview with Paul Moulton to justify the latest cost/time/scope/smashing seagulls with a digger/general slippage.

This is a very good point.

I am all for being lazy and using machinery when needed but surely in this instance that job could be done much more quickly and with less damage to the bricks which can presumably be re used if the blokes in the photo just used hand tools?

Probably couldn't get up again if they knelt down #Beerguts

bit of an observation for you, a pothole crew arrived down my road yesterday, curtained twitched for a bit then got bored as they literally did nothing but drink tea and read a paper for 4 hours then filled a 1 foot square pothole in the 5 minutes before lunch and left.

if thats what the pothole crew get up to i can easily see why the prom will take 10 years to finish.
