  1. The sign from the contractors warning about these roadworks has been placed on the outer edge of the cobbled area, less than three metres from the zebra crossing. I have just seen a guy waiting to cross from The Strand to the sluice gate and three cars failed to see him because the signage is blocking their vision of the footpath. At least he waited. Some pedestrians just step out.
