Hilarious jokers at a local council have created a footpath which stops in the middle of nowhere, saying, ‘To be continued 2016’.
But the joke has fallen a bit flat with locals in Braintree, Essex – perhaps understandably, given that they are paying for it.
Walker Alf Sadler, 71, said: ‘It doesn’t surprise me. I wouldn’t trust this council to tarmac my driveway let alone a park path.’
Yvonne Butcher, 60, said, ‘It’s like looking at the end of a film, except not that exciting.What were they thinking?
‘Why spend all the money having it come out from the main path and not have it finished? It doesn’t make any sense?’
Wendy Schmitt, Braintree Council cabinet member for environment, says that the path will be finished this year.
Schmitt said, ‘We’re looking forward to continuing with this project and its completion will enable commuters in the south and east of Braintree, to walk or cycle to the station.
‘There is a choice of five routes to complete the path.’
