The Gas board are outside again. It all started back in November when they opened up the hatches on the Telephone Access man-holes (are we allowed to call them that these days?) Access Points, and left them over Christmas - presumably to stop the build up of Gas ... Next door had a leak that was found and fixed - we think - and since then every week the road has been blocked off and traffic lights put int place and little holes dug into the ground to check for gas with syringe style gauges.
Well, they have been at the corner of Harris Avenue for three days and we have been clear - until this morning again. 10 am and the road signs are coming out again. They are digging up outside the playschool (for the third time at least) and they have a digger and two vans with flashing lights.
And yes, the traffic lights are going in outside No 42.
I shall keep you posted.
