Road Closed - or was it?
Road Closed - or was it?
Worcestershire County Council granted a 5 day closure of the main route out of Longley Green for work to replace a stop valve. The excavation and repair work took two hours to complete with the road then left as pictured. The barriers are about 2 metres wider than required to protect the 400mm by 300mm verge excavation. Later in the day, the signs were pushed aside by local residents, an action that resulted in a front page article in the local paper. Worcs CC Highways and Legal departments were gravely embarrassed by the adverse publicity and complaints. Processes for road closures were changed as a result.
