Work plan sparks road chaos fears in Weymouth

 IT IS feared new roadworks in Weymouth will mean traffic chaos as schools close for the summer.

EXPECT DELAYS: Traffic queuing at Boot Hill

We can always rely on the "authorities" sending people to their stores to drag out the cones, temporary traffic lights, wheel barrows, diggers, dumpers, shovels and associated paraphernalia, over the months of June, July and August.


True, there are road works at other times of the year, but it always seems that the summer months, when holiday traffic is at its heaviest, roads are naturally congested, and tempers are at their shortest the "lets dig up that section of road now" brigade comes into its own. It is not only Weymouth that suffers from this phenomenon.
