Did anyone notice that a water main seems to have burst recently?
The reason I am asking is that the council fixed the problem and then gritted the road, but only gritted Southwark Bridge Road
but not Sturge Street
As a result I came flying off my scooter the other day as I turned into Sturge Street
as it was covered in black ice - there was no hope for me.
My bike is badly damaged and I am trying to reclaim some money from the council for this. The roads weren't icy at all and i was of course driving with care, but this was impossible to avoid. A local builder saw it happened and helped me out but in my state I didn't take a number.
If anyone else can back me up about the water main and the ice etc.. that would be great if I need it with the council.
