Road Works

Road Improvements Phase I

two cement mixers were used

the cement had to be coloured, to conform with regulations

Today in two and half hours of intensive hard work, under a hot August sun, our team of faithful builders spread reinforced concrete over about 70 metres of the worst patch of the road that leads towards Le Ripe. The road, shared with our neighbours, was ruined by last November's 'rainbomb'.

In the autumn, when the rain will help solidify and stabilize the surface, they will return to repair the other parts of the road with an aggregate of cement and crushed rocks called stabilizzato
