As if we haven’t had enough of Thames Water’s roadworks over the past two years, they have decided to stage a return to the Copsem Lane and Milbourne Lane area.

Apparently they will be working at the weekends, but that begs the question of whether they will remove their temporary traffic lights once they have finished their work. History tells us that they are terrible performers, not working when they say they will and not clearing up quickly afterwards.

Don’t hold your breath that this upcoming work will be plain sailing. WE will be watching them.
