Making utility companies pay for digging up our roads

We've had more than our fair share of roadworks misery in Croydon Central over the last few months - I am thinking of Park Hill Road and Lower Addiscombe Road in particular - so I hope my colleagues on Croydon Council are going to take full advantage of here.

How about firing the idiot responsible for closing Tennison Rd/Davison Rd and then Selhurst Rd so that one is faced with either an enormous diversion or a horrific traffic jam to get from one side of the railway to the other - doesn't anyone consider the consequences of this sort of "planning"

I always thought there was something in the system for this to be done. Perhaps it was only to charge back to contractors for delays in road works. I fully support your views and hope and trust something can be done. My fear is that ultimately it will be charged back to the consumer. Lower Addiscoombe Road was a classic and an absolute disgrace. In the early days it caused me no end of problems because of lateness for apppointments even though I am retired. I lost count of the times I use this road only to find there were traffic lights ONLY and no workmen??

Good news in some ways, but won't the Utility companies pass these charges on to the consumer? I am thinking of the continued road works in Selsdon Road where the gas company are causing traffic chaos to the beleaguered motorist.
