It seems that pavement works in South Molton are upsetting a number of people and not just me. Rogers garage in East Street has been badly affected and the works further along by Age Concern and Spar are still ongoing. The workmen have got no idea why the work’ is being done “as there are only one or two loose paving stones”. In these times of austerity I think it shows that DCC’s Highways Department’s priorities are totally misplaced and that they are extremely arrogant i.e. they know best. Oh, and the road to Exeter via Witheridge is apparently shut for road works yet again.
