Council leaves motorcycle parking bay in wrong place for a year and a half

A MOTORCYCLE parking bay put in the wrong place is finally being moved to the correct location after a year and a half.
Bath and North East Somerset Council was responding to a request from a resident when it installed the bay in 2014 but put it in the wrong road by mistake.
Now the council has finally recommended it be moved to where should have gone, on Bath’s Foxcombe Road instead of Warwick Road, reports the Bath Chronicle.
Conservative councillor Anthony Clarke told the paper: "The fact of the matter is there were more pressing items that had to be sorted."
Lib Dem councillor Caroline Roberts said in December 2015 that the bay had cost about £500 to install and would cost less to remove.
