December 17th – In Telford – it was a frosty morning after a rainy evening and there was no shortage of ice on the new footbridge. With every turn in the weather, this ludicrous civil engineering fudge looks more and more shambolic.
In many places the standing water from the night before had frozen on the bridge deck and steps – either due to lack of gritting or the grit washing away before having chance to act.
Someone really should be answering public safety questions about this farce, but I doubt they ever will.
Still, the frost on the local byways was pretty. But by heck, it seemed cold.
