Goole Not Swinging This Weekend…


ABP will be carrying out essential safety maintenance on South Dock Road Bridge in Goole.

ABP in Goole owns and operates various road bridges in the town, and the South Dock Bridge on Bridge Street (A161) is due for essential maintenance to ensure it remains safe for public use. In order to carry out this work the company will need to close the bridge for a temporary period to ensure the work can be carried out safely.
To minimise disruption, work will take place over two weekends on

6am Saturday 23rd September to 5am Monday 25th September
6am Saturday 30th September to 5am Monday 2nd October. 

There will be a 30 mile diversion in place for vehicles. Pedestrians will have alternative access via South Street across the port onto Aire Street.

“We would like to apologise for the disruption this essential safety work on the bridge will cause.” said Chris Green, port manager for Goole & Hull.

However ….

Crowle will be swinging this weekend 1940’s style.

Broadband Update

Broadband for the rest of the village and how it is progressing.

I have been invited to a meeting with the two North Lincs councillors and others on the 13th September in Scunthorpe to try and get the ball rolling properly with regard to funding.

I am not sure yet what Openreach are proposing but I expect to find out at the above date. I am happy to take any comments desires to the meeting if I get any chance to actually propose anything.

My personal opinion is that we should push for FTTdp/node that will then negate any problems that DO exist on the copper/aluminium cable that is in the ground and also for those who are a long way out.

Openreach could easily treat us as a pilot for the technology which has been around for quite a while now.

If there is any interest I can give you an overview of the technology in laymans terms so you can understand what you would get. The major change would be that you could get rid of your landline and port your number over VoIP and run that down the same fast fibre connection.

This would also avoid having to dig up gardens etc and the final leg of the service would be over the existing overhead which would not affect the actual speed of the service to any extent.

Some of the extra small cost of the fibre service would be recouped by not having to pay as much a £18.95 a quarter for your landline.

That’s just a quick overview.

Please do comment as required.
