The footpath along from our cottage is fenced off while SCIRT are repairing wastewater laterals. This morning I was greeted with this sign telling me “Footpath closed. Please wait to be escorted through”.
All very well, but there was no sign of any workers, let alone an escort. Last time I met a sign like this there was an escort, but not today. I therefore braved the traffic and crossed the road all by myself. The letter SCIRT sent warning about this disruption said “Two way traffic will be maintained” – a little strange, we thought, for a one way street!
“Their messages are sometimes strange
and every day they seem to change.”
