don’t go squishing things that oughtn’t to be squished

tags: ,

CautionResurfacing work on the Avenue required lots of signage and unique ‘plant’ equipment.

At the end of the working day the highway team leave all their equipment parked on the road. I want to have a go at driving those trucks, please let me drive those trucks! Sure, those trucks raised my ironworks! Not that I’ve ever heard it called that before.

I suspect this is a common reaction. The road rollers are not fast, you couldn’t have a ‘getaway’ chase in them, but they do look fun! The highway team know their plant equipment is attractive so they chain it up to stop random wendys running a mock and squishing things that ought not to be squished.

Dont steel our equipment

    I still snigger at the sign that says: Heavy Plant Crossing.
    I am always on the look out for an obese aspidistra nervously trying to cross the road.

    ‘Raised Ironworks’ – never thought of it as a euphemism, thanks for that image. I’d always wondered about those gangs of workers going around elevating those drain covers, but now I know better.
