.From: Mike Holmes, Asset Delivery Manager, Kier Services
To: Llanymynech and Pant Parish Council
I would like to thank the council for providing us the opportunity to meet with them on Tuesday evening [1st August 2017]and for taking the time to attend the meeting at such short notice to share with us the experience for the village as we undertake the works on the A483. It was reassuring to hear that members of the workforce are being helpful and supportive along with the benefit the weekly bulletin is providing. However the actions of some of our workforce have clearly not portrayed the work that we do in the best way. We have already taken steps to improve this with briefings on working in the public eye commencing last week. We have also introduce the use of the cameras worn by the operatives which we have found promote better behaviours both side of the lens. We hope that these measures are being of benefit to the community.
From the notes taken the following actions have been identified.
1. There are some Black on Yellow Road Closed Signs which are remaining in place during the day. ACTION: Site Team Check the wording on the signs and if it is appropriate drop the signs during the daytime.
2. The Businesses in the village are all remaining open during the works .ACTION: Site Team Identify suitable locations for Business Open as Usual Signs
