the improvements to the Uxbridge Road which have been going on all year - the pavements have been blocked off for months and the disruption has been considerable.
That said, we put up with this because we know things will get better, right?
So why is the Council pulling up the nice York stone paving and replacing it with crappy poured concrete? Surely the whole point is to upgrade the street surface, not make it worse?
On the right hand side you can see the same thing. Old York stone is out (top), new concrete is in (bottom).
So the end result will be to make the street look worse, not better.
LBH&F move in mysterious ways. No doubt they are trying to save money. But, if money is to be saved, then why not just leave the street alone, rather than spending public money on making it worse?
