LETTER: Why so long for theatre work?

I have just enjoyed a performance of That’ll Be The Day at the Congress Theatre. It was a packed house, but we must miss the next five performances.

Has the council explained to the public why the contractor requires 18 months to carry out refurbishments?

When you consider that the Japanese recently restored a subsided major roadway the size of a football pitch, surfacing and marking in just days, it makes you question the extent of our expertise.

Perhaps we should get the Japanese to quote for the work at the Congress and for the illusory Wish Tower Restaurant while they are at it!
