    I saw that on the sun, showed me boss a while ago today.. it does put us to shame. That was done in 6!!!! days!!!!!

    Would have taken our lads here 6 months!!!!!! And the bad part on that is, there is no sarcasm on that 6 months....

    It really does go to show how to do things, stop having tea breaks every 5 minutes and packing to go early at 4 and starting at 10...

    To be fair to our lot, that road will (obviously) have been shut while the repair was done. Over here, they do try to keep the roads open, and work on them at the same time. Most motorway maintenance is being done overnight; excluding major re-builds.

    But that said, it is impressive!

    If closing roads down for 6 days is the result, I am VERY sure people would be happy to change their routes for 6 days instead of endless traffic for 6 months....

    I'm not sure I believe that - the bushes seem a lot bigger in the first picture - which seems unlikely..

    I think the bigger bushes have been taken down to re-pave. On the left hand side they're virtually identical :S

    Maybe. It looks like they may have had to cut the trees down to put in that slope of concrete which is to presumably stop it happening again?

    Why on earth would they want to fake fixing a road??

    Their country is in ruins, mostly irradiated and they take the time to fire up photoshop?

    Its taking 14 weeks to lay a cycle path across some fields in our town, and they have still managed to have some traffice lights in one of the busiest parts - seemingly to park their cars!

    Is it wrong my first thought was "How awesome would that be to ride on a bike!!"? To the first pic. The second one much more awesome on a motorbike.
