The new motorway


The new motorway is going in. When outside, we are hearing the distant rumble of diggers and trucks working.


 Standing at top of hill and turning around 180 degrees from first photo - 
We can just see the diggers working in the distance.
.

 A view from the top of the fence line seen in previous photo. 
The motorway is meant to be going through where the diggers are. 
Apparently it will be behind the hill where the digger is working.

  Gosh I love the zoom on my camera it zooms in rather close aye.

They are taking sand off the top of the hill to use as fill for other areas.


The model of the project shows trees, walkways and cycle tracks on each side of the new motorway. All going well we wont see anything of the finished road from anywhere on our property. Others in the area are not as lucky as us.

    1. yes very lucky hopefully there will be no view. Noise not sure I hope not! Brent thinks there maybe less road noise as our road that goes past our home won;t get used as much - fingers crossed.

  2. At least it is out of view and, more importantly, not going through your lovely property.

  3. I am glad that the motorway has not forced you to leave the cottage, and hope that with lots of planting, you will barely know it is there. Lovely start to autumn isn't it? Have a good weekend.

    1. When we first found out the motorway was coming so close I was gutted and wanted to leave. I've dealt with this all by not following the progress and just waiting to see how it all unfolds. The big trucks can be heard from our kitchen but they say the road will be down lower than where they are working.

  4. Plant a row of trees! We have an interstate over the hill from us and hear noise 24/7 from it. And it seems to amplify at night. But we're adding more pine trees hoping to muffle it a bit....eventually.
