There is a time honoured tradition, that having finished your brand new piece of road, someone comes along and digs it up again.
Water, telephone & other services, send along a separate crew, each of whom dig madly away.
This creates lots of work for everybody, even the bean counters.
There are arguments about responsibility and cost, & of course it leaves a patchwork mess.
The same piece of road can be reinstated a zillion times.
This also helps our global, "Congest The Traffic Scheme"
We are letting the side down badly, I fear.
This stretch of road through Mokau has us working down one side, and a new water main being laid on the other.
The shoulders will be filled, and a new road surface constructed on top of the old one.
It makes the work site a bit crowded, but at least we can watch each other.
Fancy doing everything at once !
The horror !
Hope nobody finds out
I'll never get a ticket to the Roadworker's Ball ....
