How much more disruption?

Early last autumn, notices appeared to the effect that for about 14 weeks, commencing October 25, there would be disruptions in Wannock Road in connection with water mains replacement.

Twenty weeks have already elapsed since these disruptions began and the trouble continues, to the great inconvenience of everybody in Wannock, plus many people in Polegate, Jevington and Willingdon and visitors to all those places.

This might all be excused if the winter had been exceptionally severe (which it wasn’t) or if there had been signs of exceptional activity by the contractors to remedy matters.

Just how much longer will all this continue and what – if anything – are the water company, the contractors and the local authorities in the areas affected doing about it?
