The reinstatement work was carried out on 13 November as promised but unfortunately not to the standard expected.

The setts are a different design and not securely laid. Two setts have been laid below the hydrant cover rather than a paving slab being cut to fit round the cover. The Gloucestershire Highways inspector agreed the work is substandard and has ‘issued a defect’ to Severn Trent. We await further developments.
