The system has been changed and improved in the following ways:   	The old Clarence number has been replaced by 0300 456 0105.This feeds direct into the Customer Care Centre     and avoids problems that used to arise   for mobile phone callers. 	Reports may now be made online to          	It is now possible to track progress in real time on resolving road maintenance issues that have been reported online. 	Issues that can be reported include council signs, car parks, fly-tipping, potholes, playgrounds, street lighting, roads and drains and manholes, traffic lights, dead animals on a public road, trees and many others.

They were the technology to monitor the speed of traffic through he village. The results of the metro count in both Ducis and Kingston are now known.
