St Anns Road… Paved and dug up again.

Barely had the trumpets ceased their fanfare at the completion of St Anns Road in Harrow town centre, then the find new paving – having been honoured by the passing feet of assorted dignitaries – is now being dug up.

It’s not entirely clear why – seems to be something to do with the new drainage installed there – as that’s what seems to have been dug up. Whatever, could have done with a bit better planning to avoid this so soon after it’s been laid down.

    Not to worry. The council plan to shoot 10 disabled people to cover the costs.

    It is to do with drains all right. A drain on the public purse!

    Same old story. Money spent when and where it wants rather than on where it needed…of course then there is no money.

    I think before residents get too upset (understandably) I should explain. UKPN – UK Power Network had to dig up one of their cables as a matter of urgency as power had been badly interrupted in a couple of the shops. When there is an emergency then the Utility Company’s can dig up our paving etc without notice or permission. This is what has happened here. I am particularly upset because paving has been damaged in doing this. This I can assure readers will be reinstated correctly at a cost to UKPN not the Council. UKPN are also responsible for not back filling correctly by Katie’s statue which is why the reinstatement is not finished there either. I have spoken to the lead engineer this afternoon and he and I will be inspecting when works are finished and I can assure residents that it will be done correctly, I must warn residents that the long awaited lamp columns are also due to go in within the next couple of weeks but we will be watching that to make sure as little interruption as possible is experienced. I most sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused but some things are beyond the control of the Council and this is just such a occasion.

    I must also remind residents that the vast majority of the money spent on the town center was from a fund straight from Mayor Boris Johnson who some of you will know came down to see for himself what had been achieved only a couple of weeks ago.

      Over to you Susie.
      What is it to be confirm, deny, clarify?

      As for St Anns road credit were credit is due this has absolutely nothing to do with you, but you can’t help making it about you by claiming to be inspecting when works are finished.

      Surely Harrow Council has qualified Highways Inspectors who are paid to do this or have you axed another post to make your much needed savings?

      I know it’s almost voting time but please Susie less spin, more facts and maybe answer a question or two.

        well said dude maybe susie could stand in the trench in st annes and do a selfie with the slabs
