Yesterday was a very Historic Day for everyone that lives along our street. After many years of travelling into town on a very rough and corrigated dirt road, we were surprised to find the Council Workmen and all their vehicles on our street yesterday afternoon. They were there to lay Bitumen.
It was enough to make everyone smile. It is great to be able to drive on a sealed road now. The job of laying the tar did not take very long, as the forming of the road was done several weeks ago. One workman on a tractor swept the road while the water truck followed on behind. The the tar truck did his bit with the blue metal truck finishing off the job. The result of their effort - a sealed road . The photo shows the bitumen only goes as far as our turn off.
