Life will no longer be as simple in our street. Or in our village, which is currently just a big mess.
The average age of the population is probably over 60, and most of the houses are large with at least one vehicle parked outside. Our street is a main(ish) traffic route through the village. The powers that be have decided to remove the parking areas and replace them with wider pavements to narrow the road, but are not providing any other kind of alternative parking. ”Way to go!”
The healthy trees that lined and shaded the road have been ripped up, and the diggers are drilling in. It’s chaos.
The announcement for these works came mid June. Work started in July. They have dug, drilled and destroyed the access to most peoples front doors. We are advised that the works will pause for the August holidays, and will resume after the vendanges, probably the end of September. Estimated finish date January 2013.
Happy holidays !
