Cheap contract specialists. They are in my area and outside the house replacing everyone's gas pipes. Its absolute carnage. Im not making it up when I say it looks like a DMZ zone. No pedestrian access to pavements around the works meaning people with pushchairs or wheelchairs have to go onto the road with no barrier/protection but the workers make sure their lovely blue barriers protect themselves. Been like this for nearly 3 weeks now and they have only just got to my house. Havent been able to use my scooter for work as cant get it out so missus has given me lifts and had to use taxis when she cant.
I also dont understand why the autumn/winter? Gas has been off since 6am and they reckon it'll be back on this evening. **** freezing outside and not much better inside. Mud and rain everywhere outside. Broken concrete slabs everywhere. Just do it in the summer. It's a thankless job anytime of the year with the chaos its causing but they havent helped themselves at all. Nowhere to park the car, cant get my scooter out, using the neighbours drive to get to our front door as our entry way is blocked plus stuff I've mentioned above. It's a **** mess done completely inefficiently at the wrong time of year. I dont blame the ground staff, it's the managers and supervisors who decide all this.
Cant wait for them to finish and **** off.
