#695 ... Pushing it uphill

A bit like the preverbial really ... pushing S#*t uphill! We spotted these guys pumnping concrete uphill .. when we went for a lunchtime walk around Thorndon. The cement mixer truck and the concrete pumping truck were virtually wedged up the narrow Ascot Tce ... the wonders of modern construction solutions for challenging sites.

a common problem too in the mediterranean
we all want to build in the most secluded, most difficult to access places

Yes I remember that walk Jeremy. It was a delightful day and this little road was quite charming. The guys loved their work and enjoyed showing us around the construction site.
