Now it's a February finish for streetworks

Those sick to death of the eternal roadworks blighting the Cross will be pleased to know that the latest finish estimate is February 2005, according to a business person who is waiting to open a vacant shop. Latest excuse: the rain. Meanwhile work continues at the usual snail's pace, with no extended hours in evidence. What's the bet that the original nine-month job will actually double?

Better news is another well-sourced rumour that a Doyles seafood restaurant will be moving into the top floor of the new council building. The new library, however, still isn't open (remember, it was going to be closed for only two weeks!).
