Cock Up & Cover Up


It's now just over a month since I blogged about the strange case of the confusing height warning signs on and around the railway bridge in Worcester Park (which put the height of the bridge at anywhere between 15ft 6 inches and 16 ft, depending on which sign you believed) and just over a month since I contacted Sutton Council's press office and asked them for comment on the whole sorry mess.

To date, Sutton Council have not even replied to me on the matter - they obviously did get my e-mail though within days of the blog post being published workmen had been dispatched to cover the erroneous signs with black plastic bags - which was a result, of sorts.

However it took one of my blog readers to alert me to the fact that this had been done, as to date I still have not had a reply from Sutton Council.

So just as they are fond of doing to me when my Council Tax is due, I have sent Sutton Council a little reminder.

I doubt that these road signs are cheap - and as we are all feeling the pinch and watching every penny I have also asked them to let me know how much of  my money (and your money) has been wasted on this comedy of schoolboy errors.

Sutton Council obviously does listen - now I just have to get them to speak!
