Fixing It Again

The pleasant looking stones are going in again at the 'crossing' at the top of Central Road (opposite Balmoral Road). It seems the recent bitumen patch in there was only a temporary measure as the temporary traffic lights are back from their holiday and are now back at work holding up traffic in Worcester Park for the replacement stones to be set in place and the cement to dry.

Apparently the 'wrong type of bonding agent' was used when these stones were first laid which is why they all broke up. Hopefully we can now therefore all assume that 'this time' they have used the 'right type of bonding agent' and that we will definitely not see any repeat of the crumbling stonework that has beset these crossings since they were first put in.
