A large hydraulic bull - dozer was here this afternoon , at our village main road,with the quick road laying road rollers behind, and an army of workers.
All the encroachments were asked to be drawn back to the line of highway stone slabs.
It was a very hot day, and by mid afternoon the road laying workers were taking rest under the shade of the trees in front of my home.
The shaded trees were left off and the machine went away, just taking away a few branches of the plants.
The road side trees were spared , even though they are encroachments, for the benefit of the weary travellers.
