Yet again, for about the zillionth time, we have Thames Water apparently digging up Ulverscroft Road.
At 10.30 on Saturday night.
Anybody know what's going on, and why they didn't sort the problem the many times they have dug up the same bit of road before?
ETA: Just been to ask them.
"It's a hundred year old main."
Yes so why don't you replace it or do a repair which lasts more than a few weeks? Wouldn't that be more cost effective than keep having to send out people every few weeks?
"Yes I agree with you etc etc etc and you should have your water back by the morning".
I just hope the poor expletive deleted who keeps getting his cellar flooded, a few doors down from me, is going to claim enormous amounts of compensation.
Are Thames Water privatised? Disgraceful.
