This week’s events in Queensland are a reminder that precautions need to be taken to minimise the possibility and effects of flooding. So it’s good to see around my neck of the woods that the drains are being upgraded. These huge Lego-like pipe sections have appeared in some streets.
Presumably they’re big enough to cope with any foreseeable water flow. Certainly big enough to allow a dorky photo of oneself inside one.
Of course the installation is causing some disruption to traffic. I believe my street was done just before we moved in, which was a stroke of luck. But hopefully most people would appreciate how important it is.
