There is something so satisfying in watching this crew build a road

Watching this road get built was oddly satisfying. We were impressed with how straight they drive. If we were behind the wheel the whole road would serpentine.

When I think of roadwork, I think of orange cones, traffic jams, and inconvenience. In the United States, we usually notice road construction when it’s interfering with our daily lives. We also tend to associate it with improvements on existing roadways we’re trying (and failing) to use. Those roads had to get there somehow, though, and you’d be surprised to know just how mesmerizing the process is. The Australian region of Shire of Moora was previously inaccessible by paved road, but that’s all changing now.
