Yes yes roadworks

A sign went up last week that New Street would be closed off for the week-end, not a major hassle as there are other ways of getting down there. As it turned out not a major hassle at all as work started in the morning and was winding down by 11am on Saturday.

Then today they'd blocked the road off again, by this afternoon it was cleared but workmen were out coning off the left-hand side of Gilgal. No notice and no signs on approach other than a default roadworks sign. Not got a clue who's working there unless it's part of this 'emergency' gas leak from last week that screwed up Vale Road. Will prove interesting if they're still there come the morrow.

Perhaps it's just me, but I kind of like to know what's going on before it happens.

[Update - Nope they've gone now, but we've a Highways Maintenance lorry parked in Bridge Street so I'm expecting New Street to be blocked off again]
