Road Works, still at it

Road works 2

Yesterday, as I went past, I thought they would be finished by evening as the holes had been backfilled and everything looked ready for the road surface to be replaced. Staggering around town, doing the shopping, this morning I see they are still on the job at the road works, they started over a week ago. I say on the job, but I didn't actually see anyone around. Still, finished tonight, for sure!

Do they, when they're there, have like eight guys leaning on their shovels while one guy works, like they do here?

@Ronrybs I thought you rode your bicycle a lot? Would this interfere with that?

@CoralLevang The road is bit busy with heavy wagons as well as cars, I keep my biking to the back roads as much as possible

I hope your road works are almost finished. I think that ours will be finished by the end of next week.

@LadyDuck I fear they will just move the hole somewhere else. I am sure there is only one hole in existance and they just move it!

It's like that here in the States, too. Once they begin road work, you can be sure it won't be finished anytime soon! lol

Yes, they are only happy when they are digging a hole, not to worried about filling it in again

We have been held up for 5 or 10 minutes at a time every time we go to our nearby town. However they are getting to the end of it all now which is a blessing.

Roadworks do seem to take forever. Haven't been up to have a look today

You know those works proceed in slow motion. It'll probably take two days just to pick up.

I think they drag this sort of thing out on purpose. It is very annoying.

It feels like it, but aren't they charged for over running?

But I think you have far far better policies of construction as ours. Here we get messy surroundings if any construction going on.

Here when they do work on the road it seems like they take forever.
