Regarding your report (Visitor, 02/07/13) concerning the work by Dong at Middleton. I cannot agree that Dong are “Going the extra mile” to minimise disruption to the local residents.
Newts were only in Middleton Wood (now been closed for approx 10 months and still no end in sight)
Dong never finish anywhere, they do a bit and then leave it and go somewhere else.
For example, on Carr Lane, the traffic lights were in place for over six months, most of the time there is no work going on.
On Middleton Road, the traffic lights were in place for approximately eight months and at least 75% of that time there has been no work going on.
You and I are paying for all this, through the green energy charge on our electricity bills!
