Can take all forms of disruption.
At 9.30 this morning I was on the phone to a utility company about work that should have been rectified last Monday. Fair dues, within an hour three vans, 5 men turned up, and commenced finishing outstanding work. Not a sign or barrier in sight, but a complete blockage of a pavement area. Hopefully within a 2/4 hours or so they will complete the task in hand!.
Perhaps worth mentioning, the task in hand, is the rectification of trench work, which was boarded over for 3/4 weeks.Then concreted and tarmaced over, which within a week all 'quality controlled' work commenced to break up. They are now digging it all up, and replacing all the previous work again. Further capping (not removal) of obsolete gas pipework. Now someone must be paying for all this,and no doubt its the customer!.
