One hour and forty minutes from Thames Ditton this evening, Thames Water digging up the same spot again on the Upper Sunbury Road, 18.45 they've made their usual mess and left, presumably they've worn themselves out!

Gareth can we not insist they work until the job's completed, or, better still can we all claim compensation, after all there is a cost to everyone, not counting the time that's being lost I wonder what the cost is in wasted fuel?

I concur!  The hours I have wasted travelling up and down this road is uncountable.  What makes me angry is that last night when I finally reached the temporary traffic lights that were causing havoc, the guy was sitting in his van on his phone and then still on his phone when I had to return down the A308 half an hour later.  This morning I set off super early at 7.20 am from Thames Ditton, I reached the traffic lights at 7.50 am and guess what he was in his van again and then again at 8.20 am, maybe he was scared that if he was visible outside he may receive communication from the public in rush hour!  I managed to take a look at the ground work ...I witnessed a 1/2 meter 'scraping' of the road and that was about it.  Does Thames Water know what chaos this causes every time they dig up the road? They should have fines slapped on them for not fixing their leaks properly. Having to do the return journey twice a day a few times a week it is incredibly frustrating sitting in this traffic, the red lines on the map attached depict the traffic jams, that I witness, there are probably more which I have not seen.  I'm dreading the journey at 5pm tonight :-(  What are they doing to fix this road once and for all????????

It's gone. No traffic, no road works and no Thames Water.  I wonder how long that will last?

The road is down to one lane again, apparently telecom works this time.  It was being put in place early evening yesterday and going on until the 20th.  So it wasn't long at all

Think you will find it's Thames Water AGAIN! Came home late last night, another great hole and TW vans and diggers, I suppose it's something they were actualy working at 3am!

Ok I was only going but what 'live road works in Richmond' said.

So who’s digging up Hampton  Court Road today then?
