Chicane: it seems like forever.
I know that it took 20 years to get the extra walk lights on Goodwood Rd, and I'm still not sure how long it takes to fill a pot hole. But I do know that it takes 7 years to get a chicane removed. Last week work began on removing one of the chicanes in Mills St: this was identified as causing extreme difficulty for a a particular property as the residents could not safely enter their driveway. Yet it took 7 years from when Council identified the issue, gained DPTI approval and then actually started the work. The reality is that most things of a remedial nature are done quickly and efficiently but others not only seem to take forever, they actually do!
