Drain Problems...
« on: February 13, 2013, 07:33:56 AM »
They are putting new drains in our street...

The old ones are full of shite and rather than clean them out they have decided to put new ones in - money being no object and everything... ::)

So they dig up the road and put the new pipes in - they sit them on a bed of gravel then pour concrete over them to seal them up...



They have worked all the way up the street - filling in behind them as they go. Now all they have to do is connect the new drain to the old one that continues on up the road...



Oh... doh:

Good job the Channel Tunnel diggers were a bit more accurate....  noooo:

They are supposed to be digging up the entire village to put mains sewers in (EU regulations), what a cluster fuck that is likely to be....  ::)

When they put new lecky cables in our road they just dug up the pavement with both cars on the drive - didn't even knock on the door to ask if we wanted to move them... Three days stranded.

I got my Mini wheels done over in Paigia somewhere - it took me hours to find the guy (and eventually had to drive across a field) because everything was dug up - he said he didn't know which way he would have to go to get to work in the morning or home again in the evening....  lol:

And yes, this new pipe thing will go right across the end of our cul-de-sac... ::)
