Exciting News: Southway is being resurfaced
« on: October 17, 2008, 11:38:22 AM »
Well I got excited when I saw the sign, it starts on the 5th November for 3 days.

Now which other roads shall we moan about to get resurfaced?

They're doing loads at the mo - London Road and Stoke Road have just been done. They did those at night though and so anyone living around there is going to have to make sure that they're very drunk so that the noise doesn't keep them awake.

cool... and they've scheduled it perfectly to coincide with the gas main works starting on the 12th, the new cable tv stuff on the 14th, the burst water main on the 18th, and the overloaded lorry to properly break it all again on the 1st december.

i remember thinking how great it was they fixed the bridge by the train station last year.  that didnt last a week before it was dug up again!!

Stoke road was being worked on during the day and open at night

That's awesome.

Southway is by far the worst road I have ever ridden on.

I guess your probably right though nick, nice new surface won't stay unblemished for long.

I expect they may just re-surface it in patches from the outset.

I'd expect they'd give you a letter to get in and out.  They won't dig the entire road up, you'll be able to get in and out.
