Spot the Difference!

Trinny and Susannah fans excitedly gathered at the gates of Hafod Landfill Site this morning to witness the mother of all makeovers! And out he popped, sparkling! New signs, working lights and beautifully clean! I almost fancied him myself.

And from the front - flashing lights to warn unsuspecting drivers of the dangers of a slow moving sweeper at a hump backed bridge / cross roads on a main arterial route to the A483.

You too could enjoy a makeover; visit www.trinnyandsusannah.com

Perhaps they could educate Dull, employ Mark and give Numpty2 some working rear warning lights (VOSA are on to that as we speak!).

Is this what Rob Allan meant by being a good neighbour - contracting a death trap and putting it on the road.

Thanks Mr. Allan, we are reassured!

In all seriousness and with two Directors (at least) on site and a also a Site Supervisor did nobody from MWHthink that the sweeper in yesterday's condition was dangerous?

Somebody's taking the p*** out of the ole lad in the sweeper! He spent most of yesterday cleaning Numpty2 and they sent him out onto the highway this afternoon with a yard brush and a litter bag!

Is this Investors in People MWH style?

What humped back bridge? There is no humped beack bridge near Hafod.
Acurate as ever.

Humped beack bridge? Nah, I've never seen one of those either!

If you had half a brain and weren't on the autistic spectrum you wouldn't take everything so literally - I think you know what bridge I am talking about!

I know which bridge you mean but others would not. It is just another example of how the truth has no bearing when you are complaining. This shows why the authorities are not doing your bidding and it is nothing to do with bribes that you claim MWH have handed out.
Keep up the good work and destroy any credability the protest has left.

That doesn't need a make over, it's a road sweeper,just needs a bit of back to black and a t cut.

Why do you keep avoiding the issue just answer the question?
Is a sweeper travelling at less than five miles per hour on a very busy road with no indicator or brake lights a hazard?
Yes or no?

I hope you watched Trevor Mcdonald tonight. They were showing how distractions cause accidents. Especially from outside the vehicle.

With all this traffic chaos and stuff, how many accidents have there been between Hafod gates and A483 entry ramp in the last ten months?
It must be bloody carnage down there. I could nip down and make a new video before Christmas. Do you think it would sell?

Do you mean that Hafod Quarry Landfill, with all this alleged chaos that you claim you have seen, has not caused any accidents? But how can that be?

blah blah BLAH

Pure good luck, but rest assured it will only be a matter of time before there is a serious accident.

The police do not monitor the speed of vehicles.

The Highways Agency have done nothing about erecting signs on the A483 to warn
L G V drivers of the height of the railway bridge on the Bangor Johnstown road.

Is it not common sense to prevent an accident than to be wiser after the event?

Speeding vehicles will be nothing to do with Hafod. From exiting the A483 to the crossroads an LGV must have an amazing amount of power to get to 40mph and then slow enough for the corner it would need a parachute the size of a football pitch.

The police have better things to do than sit there doing nothing.

With the exception of this morning, (yes I heard about numbty) Hafod traffic is not allowed to use Bangor Road towards Johnstown so again nothing to do with Hafod.

So, what were you saying about common sense? Even with this mornings antics the number of accidents still remains constant. The likelyhood of there being an accidenton this stretch of road has not increased by Hafod. If anything, the speed of the sweeper and heavy traffic slows everything down making it safer.

I apoligise for being misunderstood,
speeding cars was what I was referring to but taking into account the fact of the L G V's and road sweeper on a 60 mph road where the speed limit is constantly being exceeded an accident is bound to happen.

Idiots do not heed slow moving vehicles they overtake them and put oncoming drivers at risk

Where are the police

Sorry Steve. I thought you were refering to lgv drivers using Hafod. Unfortunately speeding motorists and bad drivers are a daily hazard for us on whatever road we are travelling.

Well it doesn't speed up, does it?
The comments like 'traffic chaos' and the arguement you put up about the lagoon beat my comment by miles.
So tell me, how many accidents have there been which have been caused by Hafod? I think you must be at the wrong gate in the mornings if you are near a humped back bridge.

Thanks for that JD, if you concede the sweeper and waster lorries "slow" traffic down outside Hafod then surely WCBC planning committee will take this into consideration when the removal of clay planning permission is debated.

Why? It has nothing to do with the clay does it?
It is as relevant as the South Park doll.

Dull explain why members of the public are forced to drive at less than 5mph on a very busy road with a national speed limit, purely to facilitate of the actions of MWH.

They are not. You try to make out that there is a traffic backlog all day every day. There is not.

So it is acceptable for MWH to force the general public to drive at walking pace and overtake a sweeper lorry in rush hour traffic, on condition it is not happening all day every day?
Your comments are ridiculous Dull you should move into politics.

Answer = No that's not quite correct the real answer is the distraction on the left handside before the A483 blowing whistles and heckling

Nobody is FORCED to do anything. Several times I have seen the farmer on the other side of the A483 park his cattle lorry on the road to slow traffic when he is carrying silage or muck spreading. A good idea I would say but totally illegal. The county has roadsweepers working all over every day but you are not complaining about them. Don't forget that it is the same public who are using Hafod to get rid of their waste.
You would be better to spend lore time getting the goat prepared for spitroasting on Thursday.

Remember this?

We've only been going for six weeks but already this blog has generated more than 10,000 hits, which shows how interested people are in this issue.

Todays total is 13863.

With about 11000 loads tipped. I think the figures speak for themselves.
Don't forget the KY for spitroasting the goat. You wouldn't want friction burns.
