Drainage works in Brighstone

By a County Press reporter

Monday, June 9, 2014


WORK to improve drains in Brighstone will take place this month.

Isle of Wight highways PFI provider Island Roads is clearing existing drains and installing new ones before resurfacing is due to start, on June 23.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place during the drainage works and Main Road will be closed for five nights, between New Road and Moortown Lane, from June 23.

Diversion signs will be in place directing traffic via New Road, Grange Road, A3055 Military Road, Brook Village Road, B3399 Brighstone Road, Hunny Hill and Main Road during the road closure.

Island Roads construction manager Keith Gourlay said: "Due to the number of businesses and the local school within this area, we have programmed these works to take place overnight to minimise travel disruption.

"Our teams on site work extremely hard to accommodate access to businesses within all our road closures and there will be dedicated pedestrian walkways and marshals available to assist."

Alright, I'll put it another way. Island Roads, you clear gullys - but surely Southern Water puts in new drains. Am I wrong?

DB... me too, they're quick enough to take money from me to transport 'their' water that falls onto my house (whether I want it to or not... like I have a choice) in their drains, so surely it's their responibility (?) to maintain them and NOT Island Roads.

Hang on! - I always thought that drains are the responsibility of Southern Water
