    Taith was the funding vehicle at the time for this project and Ron Davies the then Leader of the Council was its chairman. It was pointed out at the time the sum of money was huge and after installation future maintainence costs would fall upon the ratepayer. They were never required and rarely worked properly, the money would have been better spent on dealing with our abundant pot holes .

    The same thing applies to the so-called digital bus time information — capital spend and then no revenue to keep updated — total waste of money.
    What about the Town Centre free wifi is that working yet or another white elephant system. (apologies to elephants)

    My first thought when I saw this was about the digital bus information. Last time I looked at these displays they were still ‘live’, albeit with a just a speck of light. I wonder how much the council are spending on the electricity for these displays. I’m guessing that, at best, they consider the ongoing electricity bill for these to be cheaper than having people go round and disconnect them from the mains.

    The £76,000 quoted by the Council for the Electronic Parking signage is probably the money spent by the Council since they have been erected. All costs of the initial installation being covered by Taith.
