Falmouth roadways asphalted in Road Resurfacing Project – [Pictures and Video Update]

Three months ago, the Falmouth Road Repair project began on Upper Parade Street. The project entailed creating an underground drainage system on Upper Parade Street to take the waste water across Tharpe Street and into the sea on the Falmouth Main Road. In addition, Falmouth Street, Petticoat Lane (Spicy Nice Lane) and Courts/Albert George Lane are to be resurfaced with asphalt.

The drainage has been built on Upper Parade Street and yesterday, the asphalting began. Still to go, is breaking Tharpe Street from Upper Parade Street.

Between yesterday and today, I took some pictures and a video during the road work so as to post an update on the project.

The asphalt work was criticized by citizens as being shoddy and poor. The surface is uneven in several places and seem ready to develope potholes in the near future. A picture at the end shows water already seeping through the asphalted surface.

Well, we have come to realize that we should not expect everything to be perfect (especially under our political system), so we only have to give thanks that it is much better than it was before.
