Notices were initially erected by Bury council informing residents not to park on the road while resurfacing work was carried out.

然而, the signs were later removed on Friday as the gravel was placed on the road.

当时, residents thought it was okay to return their parked cars to their usual positions outside their homes.

But they were met with surprise when the workers returned of their own accord to finish the last layer of road surfacing.

With the vehicles still parked, the council employees decided to add the top layer where they couldsnaking micro asphalt around the cars.

Fuming resident of the road, Alicia McIntosht, 告诉 Manchester Evening News: “We left the cars for two days and we went away Friday afternoon.

“And we came back an hour ago to this. To be fair it doesn’t bother me that much.

“The most annoying bit is treading the stones into the house. I’ve seen [tarmacking around cars] before around here. If they wanted us to move it we could’ve done that so they could do a proper job.”

Another residents described the decision as “strange” as the work now looks “half done.”

“They put the gravel or shail stuff down and then took the notices off so we all thought it was done. Then we came back and they had squirted this stuff on it,“ 他们说.

“If it was all like that it would be great. It’s messy as well [the gravel] because it gets everywhere.

“It was a surprise because nobody knew this was going to happen. It was in the afternoon that it happened and I was out and I came back to it like that.

“If they left them notices up people would’ve moved their cars. It is strange, it just looks half done.

“The bit that is done looks good, if it was all like that it would be great. But it is not.”

According to the MEN, the road was in desperate need of repair and that the resurfacing treatment had initially been welcomed by local residents.

Many hope the workers will complete the job as well as work on other streets in the area.

但, 74-year-old Stewart Lomas, who lives on the street, described the needs of homeowners as an “afterthought.”

“They finished early and they decided to do the last hour here I think,“ 他说.

I was away for two hours and I came back to this. I thought I was in the clear because they put the signs down.

他加了: “I think they are going to come and finish it. I am hoping so. It’s a half-done job. Not fit for purpose.

“If the street was all done it would not look that bad.”
