bosco wrote:Yes, I noticed this too, and on further inspection I can confirm that some of the concrete that had been poured to fill in the removed paving has now been replaced with a stretch of lumpy tarmac. In keeping with tradition, no doubt.
Leesider wrote:No, I agree with you about those street, especially Shandon St!!
I am on about the resurfacing of Sunday's Well, John St and around Coburg St.

Whether it's a preventative or reactive measure, I don't know, but hopefully the former. This time of year has a tendency to be bad for storms and flooding so it would be nice to see the powers that be having the foresight to take action before the city is under water.
