For several months now, Langton Road has been reduced to a single lane across the railway bridge due to the separate footbridge being closed, presumably due to the lack of council funding for repairs?
A few months back, Arlington Road, a well known rat-run for morning commuters, was closed temporarily due to ongoing investigation into a collapsed main sewer. It now seems the road will be closed for two weeks so a new sewer can be installed in the road to replace the damaged one behind the houses.
As far as the commuters go, we're guessing they will find another route, but with the already congested roads, where will the residents in Arlington Road park their cars?
Luckily, on the day the last picture was taken, people were at work, leaving lots of parking spaces!
