Utility Road Works in Clifton

Shadow Councillor for Clifton East, Gareth Alan-Williams, is calling on Bristol City Council to get a grip on the never-ending road works in the ward. Gareth has been speaking about the ouright disdain that utility companies have appeared to have for people living and working on the streets affected, and those surrounding them.

"The disruption caused by companies over the last few months has been appalling for residents and local businesses and enough is enough," he says.

"If the utility companies had to pay a daily levy for digging up our streets, they would make more efficient use of equipment, manpower and resources, concentrating their efforts and completing the job in far less time.

"This in turn would mean considerably less inconvenience for those residents affected."
