What a day it was. One of the biggest features was the golf cart centre line grinder, a little highly manoeuvrable vehicle attached by two umbilicals to a giant water tank and dross-holder.
Two post erectors distracted by oncoming parade
H2GO is the company – cleaner and much quieter than the old method of burning off the lines
You just don’t get to see these often. Then there were the post-erector team – helping us to understand the coming Controlled Parking Zone.
Lifting a slab preparatory to post installation – verbosity is my centrally positioned appellation.
Just checking it’s upright.
And, of course, the team putting down the new white and yellow lines. These were the creative – near freehand lettering for the motorbike bay. And supported by a big ‘shift that car’ vehicle to move those vehicles who’s owners failed to respond to the ‘no parking – line painting tomorrow’ signs.
Just a few lines for guidance and he’s off. But that car will have to go.
And there it goes.
Which allows the lineman to finish the job. By the way what’s all that rubbish doing behind him?
Its going away. The removal chaps took an old bath from their vehicle and shovelled all the crap into it, then . .
Then the full bath is thrown into the van.
Even John, our street sweeper came along to join the event.
John passes through – another part of the Hi-Viz community.
But a lot of the time seemed to be waiting.
As good a place to stand and contemplate as any. An oasis of calm on a busy street.
Meanwhile the pub is getting new signs and lights installed.
I was barely able to get away to make coffee – so much going on.
