Contractors are hard at work in the street around the corner from us.  They started with the footpaths, kerbs and drains, but now they're re-building the road itself. Normally, when the pavement is showing signs of age, they just replace the top layer, which only takes a day or so.  However, this time, the workmen have dug up and removed even the underlying layers, apparently with the intention of totally re-building the roadway.


 I hadn't noticed that this road was in particularly poor condition, nor is it a particularly busy street, so as a mere on-looker, I wonder why it is that this street has been singled out for all this time-consuming, extensive and (presumably) expensive work.
