Back to the Thickthorne roundabout
Strangely enough, they've done it again! Not only has the Thickthorne roundabout cost millions, but it also was done without the Highways Agency being in control of what was happening?
Reports in the Eastern Daily Press today suggest that the "new" road is nothing more than a catalogue of errors and overspends. As usual, throughout this whole saga, no-one is actually asking the right questions.
How in the world anyone could possibly spend 7 million on what essentially is a simple widening exercise to an existing road?
Next time something like this needs doing - let a few unemployed navvies with wheelbarrows loose - they'll do it better and a lot cheaper!
