Roadwork reaction made me feel a liar, says mayor

Friday, March 7, 2014 - 13:40

ROADWORKS at Yarmouth have continued to spark conflict, with some people complaining they have been made to feel like liars when raising concerns, it was claimed this week.
But Island Roads said workers had met a good response and all complaints had been responded to.
During Tuesday’s Yarmouth Town Council meeting, one resident said Island Roads had treated people with contempt, while Yarmouth mayor Cllr Steve Cowley said he had virtually been called a liar when making queries.
Complaints have been made over access to homes, pedestrian marshals and one road being closed ahead of the advertised time.
A spokeswoman for Island Roads said: "The team have been accommodating to everyone requiring access to Yarmouth town, permitting and assisting access for all. A number of residents from Tennyson Road and Bouldnor Road have even demonstrated their gratitude by supplying staff with homemade cakes."
