Major maintenance

The major maintenance of our street in front of our home has started this week. Big machines are riding along. As a pensionar I am home and can follow the fascinating progresses from close by.

All the paving stones are removed.

And lumped together.

Then lifted into big lorries.

The sandy street so far. Due to the heavy rains yesterday the work was stopped.

But this morning we were surprised with some "dunes" It feels almost like living on a beach now.

Men in orange with noisy machines. More pictures will follow the next days.

  1. We have the same scenery. They have been putting in new water and sewer lines along our street. next they will resurface the whole street. Tom is out there a lot asking questions. He has made friends with all of the workers.

  2. Zijn jullie nu aan huis gekluisterd of via de achterkant ook goed bereikbaar? :)

  3. Looks like that work is going to be a major undertaking.

  4. That is going to be very interesting and noisy for a while.

  5. It looks like there will be a lot of noise for a while. The end result might be good though.

  6. That is a lot going on there disturbing your peace Marianne, are they laying a new paved road, if that's the case, I'm sure it'll be well worth the mess.
