Yesterday, I wrote about Cadent replacing the blocks outside the Aurora – “They started relaying the blocks here but it seems to have stalled as we haven’t seen any action for a couple of weeks.” Maybe I prompted them into action. If so, then they haven’t done it correctly.
It seems that they might have run out of the correct granite blocks. Now, I have to be careful because I always say that my job is to report and not comment but looking at the result today, with some prompting from others, I have to say they have not done a good job. As they seem to be missing the blocks, they have just filled in the block paving with concrete.
Best of all, we had a street lamp here. What we have now is just a pole with nothing on the top.
It may be that these are just temporary fixes – we can hope – but if I see Martin from Cadent I will ask him about it.
Secondly, work is starting on the tiles on Anchor Street. They are working across at ground level while the scaffolding is going up.
