Dublin Council picking up its rubbish

As a follow up to my post from almost two weeks ago Dublin City Council finally sent someone to recover its roadworks material from the River Dodder this morning. They have been working around the foot bridge for the last week resurfacing the road at one end. I hope they tidy the stuff away this time or kids will just throw them in again tonight.

On a side note it appeared to me that a private contractor company dug up the street to lay new pipes and yet Dublin Council has to resurface the road when the contractors leave it riddled with humps, hollows and pot holes. Contractors should be forced to resurface roads they dig up to at least the same standard as they found the road rather than letting taxpayers finish the job for them.
