Roads Closed

Local roads closed.
Inconvenience tolerated, work is

I never thought to use the words ‘electrical cabling’ in a poem! There are road works going on all around our neighbourhood at present. The road was closed in front of our house for a couple of days but as the work is ‘rolling’ no long stretch is closed for too long. Sometimes getting out of the area calls for circuitous routes. Down the road one day – road closed, turn round go up the road. Next day, lesson learnt, up the road to find road closed so turn round and go down the road. We are told the distribution cabling needs upgrading to cope with the new housing being built in the area.

    “They” are working on our one lane bridge… again.
    So during the day the ‘back way’ road is closed.
    It bridges two townships – and really should be widened.
    They’ve cleared some trees to make viewing easier.
    But for the life of me I can’t figure out why ‘they’ didn’t raise the bridge and widen the road when they worked on putting up new guard rails earlier this year (or was that last year?). It always has to be closed when the creek floods.

      It never ceases to amaze me why ‘they’ always seem to go for the cheaper short-fix option rather than spend a bit more on the long-term solution. 🙂
