Having ordered some heavy kit from a B&Q partner I received a phone call giving delivery date and asking me to confirm that their large vehicle could access the road.
To which I confirmed this is so.
Yesterday when I returned home- I was unable to get onto my drive because a flatbed truck was parked across it whilst the driver was strapping a large sign to the adjacent lamp post- so I stopped opposite whilst he finished.
He apologised as he completed the task and made to drive off.
The sign road --- 'Major Gas Works in xxxxx Road
As the due delivery is still two weeks hence - what's the betting?
I live on a busy 'T' junction, and seven weeks ago we were told that the council would commence making pavement improvements and it would take four weeks to complete. The four weeks are now up, and by the look of things it going to last another week or more to possible completion?.
Rain did stop play a couple of days, plus they laid some hot asphalt on a water-stream and the next day it lifted, hence extra time for rebuilding that mistake. But overhaul, they seem a good bunch of happy lad's.
Perhaps I should have mentioned, three/four years ago, we had a major gasline replacement project that went on a few months, because it covered a wide area. The lad's (Gas Alliance) on the job were on bonus, and got stuck in, with very few obstructions or delays.
