Traffic lights fixed at last

It looks like the traffic lights on Holmer Farm Road have finally been repaired after a week and a half of me complaining about them changing to red every minute or so.

It seems to be getting more and more difficult to get things done in Brookside.  Whether it's getting traffic lights repaired, speed limit signs replaced, motorbike riders on footpaths dealt with or roads resurfaced it's taking more and more time and effort just to get the simplest jobs done.

No doubt this will be blamed on "Tory cuts" which seems to be the default answer to any complaint about poor service but the cuts don't seem to be severe enough to prevent these things from being done elsewhere in the borough (usually where there are senior Labour councillors) or the creation of unnecessary jobs with obscene salaries.
