Street Repairs

Over the last two months, we've been following the progress of the laying of new pipes on our street.

The work started at the far corner and included tearing up the cobblestones, and digging deep holes in the road. After the work was finished in one section, the hole would be filled up and the large machines would move further down the street. The cobblestones would be relaid, and this section of the street would go back to being a street.

This morning when I left the house, I noticed that the machines were now only half a block away from us. As a result of the street being torn up, it meant that some of the side streets leading to our street from the main street a block away, have been blocked for use. I guess that this would explain the increased amount of cars turning up the wrong way on our one-way street, in order to reach their destinations.......
