Fleet St Latest

As you can see there is a lot of work going on here in Fleet St. The pipes on the left carry various cables and will have a metal plate put over them and then a layer of concrete and finally the curb stones will be laid on top of that.

I am not the only one concerned about the position of the 12/12A bus stop with it's limited view up the road but that's what the plans said so that's what we have got. The only reason I can see for putting the stop so far back is to give people queuing for the bus plenty of room and will keep them away from the shop windows, That is if they queue where the digger is parked outside Sports Direct.

The consensus of opinion is that March the 19th is possible but don't be suprised if the buses don't get to use Fleet St for a day or 3 after that date.

This planter, with it's ugly tree has to be removed yet. The tree then has to be planted elsewhere. Tree roots can go down a long way so the tree's safe removal could be tricky.
