Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: ROAD REPAIRS NYC
Maybe it’s me, but have you ever stopped to think why in the hell it takes so long for road repairs to take place in New York City? Believe me I’m sure they want everyone to believe it’s because the scale of the work is so complicated and logistics of traffic detours and rush hour create a nightmare scenario too big to tackle safely in a relatively short period of time. Well personally we don’t buy any of that crap because the answer is far simpler than the hooey we’d be fed by construction officials and contractors up to now. The obvious answer is corruption and greed. Technology is a remarkable tool that aids us daily in our lives and makes things more manageable. Can you imagine what is was like to rip up streets by hand and how many more bodies it would take to get the same work done?
Pictures are worth more than a thousand words. So I’ll let the images and video do the talking and you tell me if you think they couldn’t use these tech tools displayed here to rapidly repair roadways that desperately need them throughout the city including those heinous and dangerous potholes that chomp on the unsuspecting tires of drivers unfortunate enough to roll onto or into them. If I were to name the streets and intersections where some of these dastardly demon mouths appear throughout the city we’d be here all day and all night. I want people to see what’s possible and just how quickly a street that needs complete repair can be stripped and repaved.I can understand massive projects take time but NYC with all the money there is here and construction going on nonstop, it’s hard to believe work doesn’t get done sooner not for any other reason than people are dragging their heels to drive costs up and fatten their pockets. Before someone says anything about not knowing the ins and outs of road paving. I lived down south for several years and saw highways stripped and replaced completely with newly spray painted lane lines within a week. If that’s possible there it’s possible here period.I mean just look at those machines and dump trucks. Efficient use of time and machinery is all that’s required. By the way at least 3 blocks worth of streets were stripped using the machines you see in the videos.
What are your thoughts on this?
