I’m guessing that the saw operator eyeballed these cuts. But then, does anyone really care? No pride or craftsmanship here. Looks like shit. Why do managers get pay increases when their departments produce shit like this?
Somehow this setup just does not look all that secure or safe. Does this look like the work of highly paid professionals? Not really. Do you consider this product somewhat satisfactory? Not really.

Originally the cones were set up to warn drivers about the missing pavement in the area where the curb and gutter were replaced. Makes sense. That was a couple of weeks ago. Since then, the cones have been located everywhere but next to the curb hazard area. So…why bother putting them up in the […]

What you might ask? Who knows as no matter what by-law City Hall comes up with, will not be ignored by the public […]

When you are step out of a building, that last thing you expect is a bicycle racing down the sidewalk. Are sidewalks now streets? Do you have to stop and carefully […]
Walking around this city allows for an ample opportunity to see the Environment Department’s and the Roads Department’s handy work as it pertains to asphalt patches. They usually cover areas excavated to repair water valves/pipe breaks, and manhole replacements. I am sure everyone has seen them and driven over them. I have dozens of photos of patched […]
