ABC Wednesday: D is for Digging Deep

Workmen dug a deep trench in Clarendon Place a few weeks ago. I think they were replacing a gas main but I'm not sure. The roadworks were in place for just over a week.

You can see a wider view of the work on Hyde DP Xtra.

For more D posts visit ABC Wednesday.


  1. Great capture of all the different textures.

  2. Did they walk away for a week and leave everything exposed as they do here? I don't think I will see another possible gas pipe on abc this week

  3. I hope they finish soon and not hold the traffic up for too long. Interesting layers on the right.

  4. Great picture ! A bit like earth being in an ER.

    Please have a good Wednesday.

  5. Whenever I pass a scene like this Gerald, the workmen are usually sitting having a cuppa tea, I know they do work hard, I just haven't actually SEEN them do it!!

  6. Without a barricade, an accident waiting to happen. Interesting, though.

  7. What a courageous bloger to lead with a gas pipe! Well done, Gerald.

  8. I'm just glad that's not my yard!

  9. I hope they can finish all work without snow for instance!Here in Luxembourg is really cold and this morning we had snow again.
    Snow is beautiful but after some days it can be really a problem!

  10. i hope this didn't cause any traffic problem.
    it reminds me an earthquake.:(
