Anglian Water has since apologised for any confusion caused by the signage. A spokesman said: “We are very sorry for the disruption caused to road users while we install a new water connection on Barroway Drove.”
Everyone understands the need to cause disruption, but surely someone must have looked at that signage and thought 'Job's a good 'un!'
Can't you find them, and fire them?
