Today must be "roadwork Wednesday". I got stuck at 5 different sets of temporary lights, on 5 different roads, for 5 different "reasons" on my way to work this afternoon.
There was the gas man, the telephone man, the leccy man, the water man (and his fountain) and the "I'm digging a hole for the sake of it" man - I'm really not sure who the last man was working for or what he was doing, but it looked like he was just digging a hole for the sake of it.
Maybe this is some new initiative by Wokingham Borough Council to get all road works done all at once, in one go. One day's worth of inconvenience is better than 5 after all: unless you're like me and "lucky" enough to drive through all 5 on the same journey.
