Another big job.

Recommended Posts

Road closed junction Padgate Lane - Manchester Road: why? Well it seems they were putting in dropped kerbs for disabled use, but they dug holes at least 1metre deep, surely they don't need a concrete base to take the weight of a wheel chair - folk havn't got that heavy yet. :roll:

Yet :wink::lol:

 

Would imagine that they have to have strong foundations due to the possibility of soil movement caused by the high number of cars and lorries using the road... or maybe not :wink:

The problem is Diz; a road is closed for a piecemeal job, IF they're going to close a road, why not do everything to improve it - like renew all kerb stones, re-surface both road and pavements etc. Such a comprehensive approach would seem more worthwhile and possibly cost efficient; at least until the Utilities come along and dig it all up. :twisted:

Too much like common sense.

They probably only have enough money in the budget for sticking plasters as opposed to doing a proper job.

Just took a trip into Town - these road works are appearing everywhere - could someone be spending up their budget before the next financial year?! :roll:

If all these road works and repairs aren't done to a high standard then all we need is a winter like last year and they will all start to break up by February :shock::wink:

 

Apparenly all you need is a bit of water trapped under the surface or a way in between the old and the new and a harsh icy spell will do it's worst and break it all up :shock:

 

Just in time for the next allocation of 'we need more funds' maybe :?

The road works facing the cemetery was causing major hold-ups today with traffic queueing right back into town. I had to use Farrell Street and Kingsway to miss it all otherwise I might still be there now.

that is why the spendthrifts at wbc are destroying the shrubbery and trees and putting tarmac footpaths down for use as emergency roads

 

one must realise that traffic mismanagers are employed to cause maximum disruption to traffic

Yes Baz, but the VAT goes up in January! :wink: Most of the work (when it is going on) appears to be for dropped kerbs, the rest of the road and pavements remain, complete with pot holes. :x

Believe it or not, this job at the junction of Gorsey Lane - Padgate Lane, is still going on. Or rather, was still going on, I think they've knocked off now for Xmas; leaving thin trenches across the roads, which havn't been properly filled with tarmac, thus damaging every car that bumps over them. :twisted:

So obss, what's the difference between a prostitute and your thin trenches in the road?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer is

 

Thin trenches knacker your tyres

 

While a prostitute tyres your k.... well you know the answer! :lol:

It's not difficult. No need to hope they look on here: contact@warrington.gov.uk is the universal address for reporting problems.

Could anyone explain what the hecks happening on Blackbrook Ave (near Padgate Station) There's been all sorts of work going on for some time but having just driven down there today they seem to be making the pavement absoulutly huge and I don't just mean just a bit big, it's bloody huge, almost as wide as the road! You need to see this to believe it so why would this be?

 

You don't really see a lot people walking about round that way because there's nothing really there to walk to so why do we even need a footpath there at all? It's got all the hallmarks of what they did down at Woolston Grange where huge sums of money were thrown down the pan in providing a crossing to nowhere that noboddy uses because nobody lives down that way either.

 

Who the heck makes these decissions and are they aware that we are suppost to have no money to waste.

...only within normal office opening hours of course though Vic and then you have to rely on someone opening and actioning your email :roll::wink:

 

If it's day time then easier to ring them on 01925 443322

 

or for out of hours emergencies the number is apparently 01925 444400 where by you get a recorded message saying 'sorry we are now closed....' :roll::lol:

WHY would the council be closed? Don't they have ANY responsibility for the area they allegedly work for? It's disgraceful. :evil::evil::evil::evil:
