Local government has been doing main capital city road reconstruction for a year now (had to be done in 3 month originally, but it is out of budget and out of time as usual).
They have finally opened it few month ago. But now they are closing it down again, reason is to put down storm drains or drainage wells. As you can see from the photos, there is some major work being done.
We (vocal citizens) feel this stinks and either it was a trick to make money, or a stupid mistake. Non of these is great.
Government is claiming that this is how it is done. First you make a road, then you break it to put down drainage.
I googled around for road making timelapses, looked at various articles, but non had detailed this procedure. I would like to know if there is truth to this.
I wonder if there is a civil engineer out here, who has experience in these things and can shed light on the matter.
This youtube video clearly shows manhole is being put during asphaltation phase: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJFFY-8TV_E
