‘Would council bosses be happy if roadworks were on their doorstep?’

EDITOR - I’m writing to you regarding your piece on the road repairs in Skegness.

I reside on Lincoln Road and was treated to heavy roadworks until past 3am.

I note Mr. Rattcliffe, Area Highway Manager, was quoted as saying: “We took the decision to carry out the work in the evening”.

I work in the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston and unfortunately was treated to no sleep until after 3am. I don’t think most people would view this time as the evening.

I have elderly neighbours and a small child. This was an awful situation. Would Mr. Rattcliffe be so keen on this time schedule should it be on his doorstep?
