Letter: Council should protect public

Roadworks need to be planned better.

We are all aware that the utility companies have to periodically carry out maintenance.

However, it is time for a more realistic and considerate means of doing so.

There have been recent examples of temporary lights being introduced – and no work undertaken for the majority of the time. When workmen are on sight there appears less action than work.

What is even more of a mystery is why have several of these lights were introduced during the Easter holiday and in the most congested areas.

If the council has anything to do with it in terms of permission and timing, you have the opportunity shortly to get rid of some of them.
