You may remember how back in December 2011 barriers were put along the top of Stert Street.
We learned later that the River Stert Culvert, beneath the street, needed stabilising, and work was done in March. This picture was taken at the end of March of an entrance used by workmen to enter the culvert from Old Station Yard.
Spike send me a picture of the River Stert entering the River Thames showing that stabilisation work had been completed at the bottom end.
But two months later, in mid June, the barriers at the top end of Stert Street still remain.
The Bus Stop taking people to Abingdon Hospital is still out of bounds. The Olympic Torch could be in Danger.
It is difficult to know what is going on below the surface. It could be just inter departmental financial squabbling, between the County Council and the Environment Agency, about who pays. Or it could be that the repairs are more complicated than those first thought. Or maybe the barriers just need collecting.
