Some action next week.


Finally years after the old water main passed its use-by date the council is replacing it. The last few years it has been common to see repair gangs patching the old ruin, it had got to the stage that it broke every time a truck pulled to the side of the road to use their phone. The only sad part of this job is the savings the council will have in repair costs will have a close to zero chance of flowing on to the ratepayers.

  1. If they are going to do this, then it makes the possibility of the new road going through your place slimer, doesn't it?

  2. Not really, the old pipe was ruinous and there will still be plenty of houses left on the street that will need water. No doubt it will be a headache later on though, if we stay I suppose they'll ruin our good ADSL connection too.
