  1. As they haven’t cut off any of your services yet, I’m guessing they aren’t anywhere near finished!

  2. “Another day? Another two days?”

    With projects of this nature, you can get it fast or get it right. Seldom do you get both.

    Of course, it is possible that you will get neither.

  3. You have my sympathy.Our local road is having a cycleway/footpath run alongside it and this has been in progress for 4 years and counting. Fair enough, the path runs along the side of the harbour and has required a realignment of some of the rail track as well as building up a few bits of causeway, but the way in which they sequenced some of the work beggars belief. Now just as the raodworks show signs of finishing, the railway have decided to upgrade the level crossing just around the corner from me. The crossing which has been around since the railway was first built in the late 1800s just had flashing lights and gongs to warn of approaching trains.Fair enough since the trains consist of a few container wagons propelled by a shunting engine at walking pace, slow enough for even the slowest pedestrian to get out of the way.Now we are to have road barriers in addition,my wife and I wonder how the townsfolk have managed to survive for all those years without being mown down by a rampaging engine.
