After being open for a few weeks, first for traffic going up and then for traffic coming down to the harbour, Fleet Street was closed this morning. It will be closed to all traffic for two weeks while a new surface is put down. Today and the rest of the week work will be continuing to get everything ready for the big re-surfing machines to turn up next week. Hopefully everything will be cleared away before 1 July (this year, fingers crossed) and traffic will once again flow in both directions. Until 9 September when the contractors will again descend on our much abused pedestrianized walk way through the centre of our beautiful town.
Oh yes, half marathon is on Sunday 23 June, starts at 09:00 in Paignton and makes it’s weary way to Torquay along the sea front, back to Paignton and then back to Torquay and the survivors then make their way back to Paignton for the end. So guess what, yes that’s right. Roads will be closed, bus services will be disrupted yet again.
I’m glad I ain’t a bus driver. Who am I kidding?
