This was out by HWY 6 South over the long weekend and a massive effort of trucks and machines. Was on the Burgman which is normally pretty easy in these situations. but was tired and kept looking at those incredibly deep square off ( whole width of the highway ) trenches that had been dug.
The 401 tho was brutual - a slow crawl not quite enough for easy balance and surrounded by trucks moving at different speeds from zero ot 5-10 kph. That was work and a bit nerve racking at night as it took the 401 out by HWY 6 down from 3 lanes to 1 that included part of the centre shoulder. Oh joy.
Was NOT the fav part of the ride and I was tired after 7 enjoyable hours so concentration was low.
If I could have pulled off for a short break I would have but not even that available unless I dodged inside the cones and they had these huge deep trenches ( think a meter deep and width of the entire highway ) cut in the road surface - not sure what that was about.
Any Idea what the trenches were as they did not seem to be doing a normal highway repaving.
Only digging these deep trenches every couple hundred meters and then later I could see they were filled in with bitumen.
