Of course it matters which county it refers to. Some counties have more roads than others. And you’re making a wild (and inaccurate) assumption that these compensation payouts are all due to potholes. I wont be making a complaint to Cllr Clatworthy, as I have nothing to complain about. Other than about those people who make frivolous FOI requests and thus waste far more of taxpayers money ...
Diana Mond, does it matter what council it is? the point of me placing this on Dawlish.com, was to show just from one department, (Transport) how much money is wasted on claims when in the majority of cases, the problems could have been fixed. Maybe by those that are trying to fix Exeter Road. In Devon, we have a team of men called "linesmen", There job as I understand it is to drive around and ...
No he had that Honey Bee place.
Oh gosh, please no, please be refused.
I guess it's a prime example of end of tax year, so work being done, poorly, low cost and low brain usage too.
Lots of complaints have been made about the bad management of this to DCC. It's appalling really, you'd think by watching them that they have no idea how to resurface a road or use traffic lights.
Just been told by one of the workman they hope to finish in two weeks time. People living along the Exeter Road had letters saying the work would generally be undertaken between the hours of 07:hrs and 22:00hrs (Monday to Sunday)
Ziggy, typical work ethic in this country. Start at 12-noon finish at 4 pm...... Teignbridge Council needs to get their act together and clear the storm damage at Coryton Cove...... By the look of Tucks Plot, there will be many months before this project is anywhere near completion.
Not much going on at the moment, quite a few workman arrived but nothing started. I was talking to a lorry driver on Saturday waiting to unload and he wasn't very happy he said he was told to be there at 7am (the time work was supposed to start) and no one turned up until 9am it was then 12.noon and work just about to begin.
Please keep us posted with the situation Ziggy.
