Last word on the Road Works at Penn Inn
While sat in stationary traffic for 10 mins the other night I noticed that even the motor bikes couldn't get past.
The road works are all done up there for the time being. What had happened was small parts of the road had sunk a few inches along a 500 yard stretch. You got to know where the sunk bits were and avoided them. When the notice went up warning that resurfacing would take place I expected that they would dig the whole stretch up and re lay the road. Well they haven't, four nights spent patching up. And the patches are just as bad as the sunk bits; even worse really. Now the patches extend across the road and it is impossible to avoid them.
Still the engineers know best. I hope.
