Roads Less Travelled

I find myself a wee bit obsessed with the state of Christchurch East roads.
One glimpse at these photos and it's easy to see why I think.
The good news is, that I've never seen so many orange-coated road works looking so genuinely busy and the main traffic thoroughfares are being quickly repaired - or at least made passable.
Beyond those key streets it's another story altogether.
Manholes have popped up in the middle of roads.
Giant puddles of liquefaction swirl around roadsides.
Mini craters punctuate the asphalt.
And bumps and hollows make most journeys on this side of town a cross country event.
It's part of our new post-earthquake landscape
And It's all a wee bit exciting.
