The delay is apparently mainly due to due to inclement weather.

What rubbish, it has been a really dry winter.

I couldn't agree more. They are even warning about hosepipe bans in the south!

I occasionally chat with a worker from the relief road on the 199 bus.

Weather last summer initially slowed things down
Then in Feb, work was suspended for 6 weeks in some areas due to the ground condition - too wet.
He says that the earthworks are more or less on schedule but the structures part is what is behind.

There never seems to be many people working at any one time anywhere and little was done for months at the railway bridge at Norbury although there does appear to be some activity recently.

Work on the railway bridge at Norbury can't be completed until the new section is open as the old route needs to be dug up / out. All that will remain of the old A6 route will be the new "bus bridge", though that isn't ready yet.

Oooh to be a fly on the wall when these contracts are discussed and signed!
Then to be a fly on the wall in the Gents immediately afterwards, when people speak their minds!!

Had a drive along the new and old high lane roads. New boring piece of bland tarmac to drive fast on just to hit a speed limit/ slow jam at the other end. The houses on the old road are the winners; their value will rocket. Could it be the end of the Robin Hood Thai restaurant? Sure, they will put info signs up but why stop when you can drive fast?! An ideal site for more houses.

Thai Fusion may already be lost. Have a look here.

Planning ref DC/064288
No decision yet. Maybe got to wait until the road completion to prove their case. That’s a long wait. :roll:
