Roadworks update

I previously reported that major roadworks were expected along the route of my cycle commute. After being delayed, things are starting to move this week, so I thought it would be worth a quick update. The weather has been nice all week. During the four days on the bike (one lost because of the spokes), work has gradually commenced, mainly preparing the area affected by the works.

Captain Bethell and his expedition crew moved on site and established base camp. Peripheral fencing has been established to provide storage for materials and material removed from the works. Site boards have been erected giving the site the feel of a long-term civil engineering project. Some preliminary excavation has been done to prepare for re-routing services around the area of the culvert. There haven't been any significant delays to traffic yet.
