Here’s a nice one to run for a change – a few days ago local resident the young David Evans dropped me a line to tell me how impressed he was with the new road surface recently laid in Friezland Lane, Shire Oak by Tarmac LaFarge working for Walsall Council.
You’ll remember I warned readers of the closure for the work a couple of weeks ago.
The works – like the previous job at Green Lane – took a week and were conducted in a very professional manner, according to David. I haven’t tried Friezland Lane yet, but Green Lane in Shelfield is a vast improvement and I’m impressed.
Friezland Lane is now open again, sporting a super new road surface, humps and even ’20’ speed warning signs on the road!
The team of workers have been efficient, polite and helpful, and the job was finished on time.
Thanks to the team for a job well done!
I feature this because we can all criticise stuff – but it’s nice to dole out the appreciation, too. Thanks to David for his thoughtful note.
I’m still hoping High Street might get some of the new surface love – some of the potholes there have their own ecosystems, weather and postcodes. And don’t get me started on the condition of the Miner Island…
