Same as usual just repairs,no new services installed or pipes laid , then further along the line they will close the road off again dig the up and do another repair , then share holders gets rich quick .
Maybe this goverment needs to get a grip and legislate that all services should be renewed and not just repaired and all below ground eliminating any storm damage by inserting Ducting underground ,this include water ,gas ,electric ,telephone , ect .

It’s got to a point where I just drive through the lights. Last week you had to drive through 6 temp traffic lights from Ventnor to Niton via the under cliff. Utter nonsense.
