Drama In Watery Lane !

There has been some activity in Watery Lane at last. BUT WATERY LANE IS STILL CLOSED – DON’T DRIVE DOWN THERE YET! (3 drivers had to be rescued today !)

Quite a lot has happened in the last few days.

  • A resident said that he intended to arrange works himself to start sorting out the problem tomorrow. This seems to have stirred things up.
  • There was a high-level visit by the County Council yesterday. Councillors Michael and Diane Hoy from Hullbridge were also able to attend.
  • Chris was unable to go due to work commitments¬† and asked if Alistir Matthews from Rawreth Parish Council could go in his place. This was denied!
  • You can see more about the meeting on “A Green Read” here.
  • There was a photoshoot for councillors today (not sure why it was needed – we weren’t invited , but then again we’re not really into that)
  • ¬†Some lorries have turned up this afternoon , hired by the County Council to pump the water into their tanks and remove it from the lane .
  • These lorries were apparently going to work for 24 hours but have stopped for the night.
  • We are also hearing an odd rumour about the regular monthly closure of the road for litter picking – if we find out some more we will let you know.
