Workmen sent elsewhere to’more important jobs’
The absence of contractors resurfacing Sea Street has sparked fears the £170,000 job will not be finished on time. Angry traders and residents have criticised council road chiefs following claims the workers have been diverted to “more important jobs”. The half dug-up site – which is causing traffic misery in the town — has sat empty for long periods throughout the past week. It has led to claims the work will take much longer than the eight weeks originally promised.
