Did the council run out of money?

Apparently they have finished but lots of poor road surface has been left untouched.

Probably under pressure from other sources to *finish* earlier than scheduled resulting in a poor job wont be long will need to do it again along the Warminster Road stretch for sure...just shows how much car traffic Warminster Road takes daily, without the HGV's the gridlock on other roads was incredible, not that we minded had a few quiet weeks except from the honking horns & a few HGV's needing to do a 90 point turn to go back the way they had come because clearly 5 miles of previous warnings of the closure was not enough 🤣

When I came down past the garage yesterday the road surface opposite there is quite uneven, thought I had changed the car for a boat, its a bit up and down there.

Top of Haynes Road is awful, the old surface hasn't been replaced and you can see where the tarmac has been squeezed by all the traffic and ridden up by the kerb.

West end and bottom of Haynes Road is not too bad, looks like they rushed and cut corners near the end.
