A council decision to give similar names to roads in one area has led to fears drivers could become confused.What are they planning to call them, then?
Labour councillors have questioned a decision by the Tory-controlled council to name a new road leading into Markhams Chase in Laindon, ‘Markhams Close’.Christ! How will people cope..?
In addition, a new row of houses on the Markhams Chase estate would be named ‘Markhams Terrace’.
This would lead to three “Markhams” in the same area.
Especially in Essex, where it seems people can’t read!
To be fair to us in the rest of Essex, this is Basildon (worse still, Laindon), which really is the pits culturally, intellectually and socially. Walking around there (almost) makes Dagenham look civilised!
The poor wee things will be confused, not least because the local scrotes will have nicked, vandalized or otherwise made unreadable the signs within a week of them going up
On the other hand any naming system should be designed to avoid confusion and be easily recognisable, that is after all the entire point of giving them names!
If I was in charge of Laindon council, I'd invite Al Qaeda round for a chat.
I live in Blah Blah Road. Recently they built a Blah Blah Close branching off Blah Blah Road. No-one gets lost, (or if they do they quickly find out the difference between a close and a road).
However, I often get letters adressed to X Blah Blah Close, so when I take them up the road to the close, I can pick up my letters that our postie has delivered to the wrong house.
This is not too much of a problem since no-one sends me money, only bills, but my sister's Xmas card still hasn't turned up.
How come it is ok to be mean about Essex? Don't forget you can get socialist Councillors and probably health & safety too... almost anywhere in the UK.
look up LS5 3JL on google maps, and realise that Essex has it easy.
The sign in my old haunt were unreadable from day one; they were mostly in Arabic!
"Walking around there (almost) makes Dagenham look civilised! "
And that's saying something!
"How come it is ok to be mean about Essex?"
Because I'm an Essex girl... ;)
A certain area in Essex has issued a fatarse, and declared jiheadbut upon you!
