Come Out From Under There

The extra work continues at the top of Central Road.

Yesterday and today Sutton and East Surrey Water find themselves moving an underground stopcock because 'someone' went and installed a bench over it.

The gentleman working on it told the blog that luckily the stopcock all comes as one section and it shouldn't take to long to move it the necessary 18 inches or so and redirect the pipes even though they have to work underneath the bench to get it out. Hopefully it should be done by the end of today (Tuesday 15th).

When I asked if perhaps it would have made more sense to move it before installing the bench, the rolled eyes and shaking head rather said it all really.

Sutton and East Surrey Water should have just waited for a few more weeks, for the benches to simply fall apart... We've seen projects undertaken by Sutton's Outer London Fund team generally do, sooner or later. (Usually sooner).

How many people is that bench designed to seat? There must be space for 10 people on there - maybe 12 at a push.

Perhaps popular pastimes have changed in the 8 months I've been gone, but is there much demand for a bench that allows a dozen people to sit in semi-circular formation looking at at a small tree whilst soaking up the fumes from the traffic grinding its way down Central Road?

It's 30ft away from Cheam Junior School entrance and ends up as a mums meeting spot which i'm guessing was its design. I often sit there with my dog waiting for my son :)
