Spot The Difference


This was the scene on the corner by McDonalds on Saturday 23rd January at 3 PM.

This was the same scene on Sunday 24th January at Noon.

Work has started to widen the road between Marcham Road and Colwell Drive. Cutting off the corner will let traffic turning left get round more quickly and not block the road behind. The work was held up a little because the district council tree officer put a tree preservation order on one of the trees in the picture. So now the diverted pavement will go behind one of the horse chestnut trees instead of through it.

I'm surprised that they bothered to cut the tree down now. They could have finished the work and then removed it. They have just put nice new block paving down in Ock street, opposite Lloyds bank, and now they are digging it up to plant two new lamp posts - It simply beggars belief.
