Further to this, construction zones impact on traffic congestion, pedestrian and public transport usage where Council turns blind eye. Road access limited to one lane for years, footpaths in disrepair or dug up for years, tradesmen parked illegally right up to street corners. No flagmen when unloading trucks in side roads using forklifts, trucks coming at you to park on wrong side of street.
They are being undertaken by private building surveyors and it seems that Council only puts small cost on footpath renewal after the building is finished. So we end up with gravel footpaths while developers build which can take up to a year. This Is unsuitable access for the aged, vision impaired, those with young children, prams and strollers. Or they fence it off and make us walk amongst the traffic with plastic bollards and trams wizzing past or cross the road at unsuitable places.
But I suppose Council has different rules for builders, their own trucks and us. As we found out the other day when a council truck parked right up to intersecting street, to suck out a drain. One guy doing the work another eating on the job. We told him we couldn’t see to get out of the street. Instead of acting as a flagmen he told us to turn left and do a Uturn. We still couldn’t see traffic on the right. Where is OHS!
