Something Wonderful: Making Inroads

Mesmerizing. Made by the Shire of Moora here's how they lay this road in the outback of Western Australia.

Finishing touches were recently accomplished on the $443,000 upgrade to Airstrip Road. Funded through Roads to Recovery Funding Program. A great job by our road works crew and Trevor Longman with the Shires drone for the footage. A total of 4.9kms were completed over a two day period.
I love work like this. I could watch it for hours.

That is exactly the same way we do it in the wilds of Eastern Washington state.

That's how they made the streets in the town I grew up in. We called it tar and chip. When it was fresh it was great fun to ride our bicycles on as we could spin the wheels and do lots of fun things, like get covered with tar.
