hmeah, you're totally right. iirc they did dig it up within the last 12 months. i think this time around it was electrics (EDF), whereas last time was (i think) water. at least they didn't work on the weekends, tho. it was very noisy - every morning as i lay in bed listening to the Today programme, as the pips for the 8am news started, the drills started. i swear they were listening to the radio too.
Great Dover St is lovely now. for the time being.
The prize for most pointless resurfacing i think goes to one a few years ago when i was living down off GT Dover Street. they resurfaced (no pipes laid or anything, just resurfacing) the corner of Trinity St and Falmouth Road
, up to the barrier by Gt Dover Street. given that road traffic on that point was about half a dozen cyclists an hour, it seemed pretty wasteful.
