The top photo was taken on Monday in Abbey Rd here inTorquay and shows the top surface of the road being laid down.
The bottom photo was taken on Wednesday, also in Abbey Rd where a couple of road engineers are checking and replacing pipes. This isn't an emergency repair but scheduled work that has been in the pipe line for weeks. Really it should have been done a week ago so the nice new road surface wouldn't have been messed up. Is it any wonder we tend to dispair slightly at times here in Torbay?
