I remain surprised if not shocked that everything hasn’t been renewed underneath Dartmouth Road. If it had been then there surely would be no surprise water leak causing (an 8 week!) delay. MajaHilton seems to imply that utility updates were a part of the planning but if so it doesn’t seem to be particularly great planning.
Walking along Dartmouth Road I’m not that impressed with the quality of work. Lots of poorly aligned and chipped slabs and, as I’ve mentioned before, falls to drains are wrong so there is a build up of muck and grime deposited where rainwater pools at the low point before the drain.
One more thing I don’t understand - the parking/loading bay outside the beauty shop / Woodland stores isn’t wide enough to accommodate a vehicle. What’s the story there - looks like anything parking there would either be half on the road or, most likely, half on the pavement.
