Just learned that Welsh Water are replacing the water mains in Old Road, starting the 15th April, which is one of the few main roads into the town.
They state its going to take 20 weeks, jeeez what the hell are they going to do rebuild the whole village... 20 weeks.. absolutely crazy. 1 week to do the job and 19 weeks to drink the tea.

Luckily it wont affect us too much, but I just cannot understand why it takes so long to replace 150yrds of mains sewage pipe.
