Our house backs onto a main thoroughfare, and the fence was becoming an eyesore. It was original to the subdivision about 20 years ago and wasn't holding up well. So the town decided that it needed replacing — at the owners' expense, but I will resist getting into the politics and minutia of it all.

I took a few photos of the work in progress. First, they drill the post holes.

After the drilling it takes manual labour to empty the the holes properly.

The posts are lined up and ready to be ... um ... posted? These posts, whatever they're made of, are rock solid and should withstand the elements for a long time.

The cement truck delivers its payload post by post.

And so it goes as the workers fill the holes and place the posts.

Interesting to see the process, AC. Will we see the final product?

Too bad you have to pay for it!!!!
Is it very noisy living so close to a busy main road?

And the fence is important because??

Sucks you have to pay for it.
Hopefully it'll last a long long time

Yes, we have to pay for things like that here also. Is it metal or trex? Yes, it does look solid.

Good fences make good neighbours! I bet they are fake wood!
It reminds me that when we ordered roof shingles, we didn't bother going for the 40-year ones! We won't last that long.
