Unbelievable?

Before I even got out of bed, I heard machinery in the road. Looked out to see a large truck with a replacement length of plastic culvert. Oh nooo … the definition of insanity and all that.

But wait! It’s smaller (40 cm vs. 50 cm)! It’s got sufficient cover not to be crushed by the weight of a truck!

And it’s …

done!

    This is so un-Uruguayan! It is hard to believe they have replaced your drainage pipe so soon.

    Actually Mark, based on the thickness of the cover above it and its ability to distribute load, I think this might do the trick. With the other one traffic was practically in direct contact with the culvert.
