As usual, my end of week post detailing a few bits and pieces I want to highlight or didn’t post about during the week.
Over the past few months I’ve blogged about the disruption suffered by residents of Eccles Road because of the sewer work being undertaken by Thames Water.
One benefit of the incredibly disruptive waterworks on Eccles Road has been the closure of the road to traffic and some residents are keen that the closure becomes permanent. As I mentioned in my previous post on this doing something as seemingly simple as closing a road to through traffic is actually incredibly difficult.
I went along to the Thames Water “drop-in” for Eccles Road residents affected by the extensive sewer works last night. It was certainly a useful session to find out more about the project, if not useful in getting any commitment to compensation for residents affected by the disturbance.
