Default Road works

Work on planting trees around the Port has already been reported on the forum but they have also been digging trenches and laying pipes in a few of the streets. Road works have now started in C/Vicenc Buades, the old pot hole ridden surface is finally being replaced. They are making a lot of noise and mess but i am sure it will be worth it in the end .

Well they have almost finished in C/Vicenc Buades and have aleady ripped up the surface in C/Roger de Flor, it's causing chaos for parking and the bars/restaurants have lost trade but they are moving very quickly. Here's a few photos :-

Yes it cuts down on traffic noise mate, the railing in the last pic isn't finished unfortunately, rain stopped play on Friday and the painter is on holiday for a week but the others look really good .

Grandad you will notice a big difference, the new surface has reduced noise levels dramatically, every morning a huge lorry thunders down the road and it was so bad it made our windows used to rattle...now we don't hear it at all .
As for the sun...i will do my best .

Indeed, must be a British thing like the "wrong" kind of rain, leaves on the track and hosepipe bans after a couple of weeks of sun! (To mention but a few).

Wonder how many days of sunshine we will have, in the U.K before we get slapped with a hose pipe ban this year ?

Well, it would appear that they laid the new surface over the manhole covers, so this morning they are busy digging them out.........only in Mallorca .
