is southern gas networks the worst at causing street/pavement chaos?
they got permission for three weeks of digging last month including night works. as usual, the bus stop opposite southwark council was closed unnecessarily and rubble left on the street long after the 'works' were completed.
then at 2250 friday last (1 july) they turn up to drill holes in the pavement again. then, you guessed it, come saturday, they dig it all up again and bugger off.
still all there with more holes drilled saterday afternoon and some very slow work yesterday.
all this right in front of 160 tooley street where no doubt some overpaid employee is in charge of minimising disruption.
to add insult to injury, some comms company has been digging up the south side of tooley between barnham and druid in the same period.
and, ridgeway turned up last sunday to dig up and reseal a 1.5 sq m of road at 0955.
is there any justice or relief from these incompetent utility companies? don't get me started about borough high street ...
