The sheep's eyes might go on after the lines are marked, Astrid.
Picturit: I think so too, now they at least know the middle of the road....
Astrid.
smile How on earth does he make a straight line?
Astrid-the-car is being polite...
Hope your travels are uneventful!
Picturit: I wonder, for he does not see the man showing him that he has to go a little to the right.....
This is a dangerous job I think.
I know we will see some great things in Malta. Thank you Elizabeth.
Astrid.
Il me semble que la ligne tremble un peu.
I bet you would enjoy that job, MLMA...making the while line(s) down the center of a hilly, curvy road! grin
Picturit: I think I might make it into a science... I do hope that I wont get the hiccups.... that wont make straight lines grin..

Their job is to join up the white lines without going into a daydream and producing the equivalent of white knitting..
Picturit: I was sitting next to you in the car when we had to stop for this scene. I was impressed they still did it 'by hand'....
In Dutch we have a saying for somebody who is 'drawing lines'.... somebody who is taking more time than necessary....
Astrid.
Not an easy task to draw a straight line...Great capture Astrid!
Picturit: I hope nobody gets the hiccups....

Haha - a wonderful photo!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine.
Astrid.
Tut tut Astrid, it is normal these days to blur he number plate of a vehicle so that it can't be read.
Picturit: I know but I am so happy with the corrupt software in the car, I have great mileage... so yes the name can be shown... you-wanne-buy????

I think the whole procedure is very clever, Astrid
Picturit: It was fun to see, I was in the car with Chris smile
Astrid.
This is all done by machine here.
Picturit: Here too... but it was fun to see and maybe because this was hilly and a winding road..
Astrid.
Perhaps Chad used all the cats-eyes for his interminable series a few years ago.
Picturit: I think so too and maybe somebody complained by dangerous situations by somebody on the ground taking pictures, on the middle of the road.
Astrid.

You claimed that VW very fast smile

Funny thing is that we don't use pushcarts for road lining. They have a driver in a vehicle, which directs straight lines by infra-red positioning. Other signs, like arrows, are done by use of a template.

Quite interesting to see these men at work. I guess that machines are used elsewhere in the UK and this is some kind of an exception.
Picturit: Because of the corrupt software I do great on miles grin...... and yes we do have machines that figure out the lines... remember this is England...
we have templates to and the paint is very thick and kind of plastic...
Astrid.
Very low tech using a bit of tatty rope for a marker
Picturit: Don't you love it.... this to me is so funny smile
Astrid.
He never grew out of Join the dots
Picturit: smile that is a good one, I wonder when he changes colour....
Astrid.
I thought cat eyes were required...smile
Picturit: I thought so too and I think those are a great invention..... with nowadays still could work well with all the new materials and technicians.
Astrid.
A mobile road block ;-)
Picturit: I was with Chris in the car, we had a great view on the scene...
Astrid.
I can only imagine how hard that job is! Love the Astrid car!!
Picturit: Can you imagine getting the hiccups or you have to move out of the way because somebody did not see you... wink
Astrid.
