Road works

The dip in the road just outside the house, which causes the house to shake alarmingly when heavy vehicles go over it at speed (especially buses, late at night and early in the morning) has had many temporary repairs, and finally various sections of the road, including "mine", have been properly done. It's been interesting....
Day 1 - surface removal
The culprit - a pipe that prevents a thorough treatment of the roadbed
First layer - gravel
Exciting moment - airborne delivery of roller
Cement is down, ready for tarmac

How many men does it take to spread some tarmac?
Next layer
Four days later - all done!
