Road Works and Weather

March 16, 2018

Thanks to Kim for this notification …
Gas Main Replacement
The Herald had a public notice in this week, and Roadworks.org has details, about gas main replacement work in Bath Street between Stratton Way and Faringdon Road.
Gas Main Replacement
The 2 way control lights, sometimes operating, in Bath Street will be replaced by a road closure. Parking will be suspended. Diversions will be in operation. It could lead to delays.
Gas Main Replacement
Gas main replacement continues round the Albert Park; currently the top of Conduit Road is closed for three weeks.
Gas Main Replacement
There has been a lot of rain recently, but lunchtime today was warm and sunny. However temperatures are likely to fall this weekend. The newspapers are talking about a ‘mini beast from the East‘ at the weekend. This follows the ‘big beast from the east‘ at the end of February.

    I saw this item and thought “great, they’re finally resurfacing BathSt/Wootton Road” only to read on and find it will be even more of a patchwork of potholes and piecemeal repairs. So many local roads are becoming dangerous, particularly for cyclists who have a choice of a) cycling through the potholes and hurting themselves or damaging their bike, or b) swerving to avoid them and colliding with traffic. This road is one of the worst affected, not least because so many school students use it alongside the heavy traffic.

    I’m sure we’ll all be grateful for the works in due course – but it really wouldn’t have killed them to let us (i.e. people living in Bath Street, and the wider world) know earlier. There’s not that many residences on the stretch of road affected. Ten minutes, total, to stick a flyer through each letter box?
