[UPDATED] In the thick of it, yet again

For some time, the building works across the road have been relatively quiet. Last week there were some signs of renewed activity creating nuisance here, and now it’s truly arrived.

It’s all obscured by clouds of dust rising from the works, and forcing me to close the windows (at least it’s no longer our hottest July on record). My best guess from what I can see and hear is that they’re using a chainsaw to cut up concrete paving slabs, for the area that’s destined to be communal garden.

The noise isn’t as bad as it’s been in the past, nor as the yobs home, though it’s loud, amplified by the wall of the building, and much nearer than the yobs. But the dust is as bad as anything from there since the week of bonfires in autumn 2005.

[UPDATE] There’s now a low wall of concrete/breezeblock in that garden area. I daresay the next step will be to clad it in something a little prettier.
