It's been a while, but I am back.......

With information about parking in your neighbourhood. It really is getting ridiculous and it is down to a minority of inconsiderate car owners. Yes, your friends, family and neighbours.
Summertime brings out the idiots who think they can obstruct your driveways, park blocking footpaths. Well enough is enough where I live because I am on a mission to rid my street of of illegal and inconsiderate drivers.
Rest assured I will update you on events and progress, but I expect a conclusion to this before the end of the Summer. It will be a victory for common sense.

New street lighting

           New street lighting is popping up around Peterborough streets as some old lamposts are replaced. It appears that the older style lamposts are disappearing and being replaced with new ones and I can only suspect that this is being done for a couple of reasons. One is that the older posts are too close to the road and risk being hit by buses and lorries wing mirrors which stick out. The other will no doubt be on a financial basis as the new lights have white bulbs in and not the standard orange ones. It must be that the white lamps burn less electricity.
             I have noticed, though that the white lights are not as effective as the orange and give out more light glare for motorists. Will this be the norm I wonder in future? Not so good for motorists and anyone going out in the early hours. There is a possibility that the lack of light given off by the lamps that in certain areas this could fuel crime. Let me know your opinions on this or if you have any information on the subject.

Thieves steal metal from new bridge


    
I was not surprised to hear that large pieces of steal were removed from the new by-pass and speed restrictions of 30 miles per hour were in force until repairs could be safely effected last week. This road has been jinxed from start to finish.
It should be fun in winter especially if the council has problems with salt gritting. As pictured above the road has some sweeping steep bends for lorries to contend with. Watch this space for the reports as they come in.

New Road Finally Opens

It's finally open, the new road improvement scheme 1073 / A16 Peterborough to Spalding road. The final stretch of the new Spalding by-pass link road had been long awaited but was delayed due to contractual problems between the main contractor and Peterborough City Council. At a cost of £80 million it has been a long time coming.
Having travelled along it at rush hour time the last two days it is proving to be very busy. The old 1073 is due for a makeover in the coming weeks and will be closed from 24th October.

Van Hage Garden Centre

Van Hage - Peterborough

Poshcoffeeco takes a walk   (poshcoffeeco.co.uk)


Having taken a walk this morning between home and the relatively new Van Hage garden centre site at Parnwell it is apparent that whoever is responsible for looking after the pedestrian site entrance is not doing as they should.
On turning in to the public footpath at the eye roundabout / Co-operative petrol station it hits you in the eye with all the rubbish strewn around the hedgerows and spare land leading to the Garden Centre car park.
If it is Peterborough City Council who is supposed to look after it I would suggest that the problem is tackled sooner than later before fly tippers start to dump the usual fridges and used car tyres which is usually found these days down country lanes.
I would have thought that Van Hage management would be very embarrassed if the responsibility lies with them. However, I do know that the site has it's own Site Manager and you would think that as part of his remit that he would venture out of his cosy office from time to time to see what goes on around the site.
Watch this space as I endeavour to find out who's job it is to look after this piece of land.
