20 October - White lining - click any image for photo gallery (8 images)

White lining lorry Parked car Windscreen noticeThey were out before 7 a.m. this morning, these photos were taken 20 minutes later, but that wasn’t early enough to catch the first commuters and overnight parkers. It might have helped if our cretinous council had put up warning notices in advance but there were none. Just a line of cones on both sides of the road that weren’t there yesterday. I shall be out at 11 a.m. to see if the gestapo have been busy with their penalty notices. Maybe the polite message on the windscreens is a good sign.

At 11.15 a.m. and 1.20 p.m. (after the gestapo’s scheduled visit) there were no penalty notices in evidence and the road marking was well on the way to completion. The contractors had successfully marked out the parking bay around the early commuter and it was the standard 1.8 metres wide. I checked with a tape measure; Bexley council has an unfortunate track record of undersized bays and then telling those caught out by them to challenge the fine in court.

The nearly finished job is included in the photo gallery. (Eight photographs.)
