I came over to Marple yesterday, whilst driving along Hibbert Lane there are a lot of markings on the path and road outside the college, does anybody know anything about these.

Yes, just asked they're marking out all the underground utilities, gas, electric, drains ect. Wonder why they would be doing this unless we don't know something they do!  ???

I've heard a rumour somewhere that there might be a plan to build a new supermarket in that area.  It might possibly have something to do with that?   ::)

If it was BT infinity then they'd be marking up the ENTIRE of marple, not just around the college.
They were also measuring using a theodolite today. Now, If it was BT infinity then they'd not be using a theodolite.
Whats that coming over the hill? Is it a monster?
Kinda... its a monster with a towel on its head!

I had a quick look at them this morning.

If I had to guess (and it is only a guess).. looks like a potential mini-roundabout.

some of the markings look like it could be a new pavement line.


this is pure guesswork though  ;)

Beacuse if you are planning highway works you need to check with service providers how much it will cost to divert their underground kit. These cost estimates often go a long way in determining what scheme you might ultimately promote - no point planning a scheme you can't afford.

Believe it or not, most of the service providers only roughly know where their kit is, so very often you need to undertake surveys to establish exact positions. Its quite likely that is what is going on at the moment.
Words are trains for passing through what really has no name...

I wonder if it was markings for traffic lights, but saying that it would be to early to be marking out lights or a roundabout, or is it more far on than we know
