Pedestrians walking along Portesbery Road near to its junction with the High Street were met with this challenge recently. Not only was there a truck blocking much of the pavement, but a fork-lift truck was threating to emerge from the entrance to the building site. Heaven only knows how anyone with poor vision coped.
As it happens, we don’t particularly criticise those directly involved. They had a job to do. But we have a low opinion of a council that approved and allows a site to operate in this manner. We also have a low opinion of the site management. It showa a disregard for public safety, not ‘just’ for public convenience.
