Bright Lines

If you thought the white lines in Central Road are bit brighter today you are right. There were two gentlemen repainting them this morning (shown here at Longfellow Road) and working their way up the road. I was impressed that they just stood in the road getting on with the job, presumably (and hopefully) to ensure minimum disruption to traffic by avoiding three way lights systems or stop and go boards.

I learned two interesting things by watching them today. The paint seems to dry almost instantly and it smells like someone is soldering. I guess the paint is heated to a liquid and solidifies almost instantly when poured out onto the road. Please feel free to correct/enlighten me further!
