Curb being formed
I have never seen curbs being formed before so when I saw it happening I was fascinated. I hope you find this interesting too.

The job involved two large machines and several workers.
Transferring cement to curb making machine #1
I was pleased to see that there were several workers there making sure everything was going smoothly and safely.
Transferring cement to curb making machine #2
Cement moved down a chute then up a conveyor belt, sprayed with a bit of water to maintain the correct consistency, and then down into the machine to be lower into the ditch below and shaped into the curb. (See top photo)

Here you can see the edge of the road and the ditch being filled with the new curb.

It's always so easy when you have the right tools.
Beats doing it by hand, I suppose.
i knew they have a machine for everything these days but i have not seen a curb maker. really cool how it does that... and the house behind the machine has me drooling.
I've never seen a curb being made either. Interesting!
So that's how it is done. Huh. Never even thought about it but I will now notice curbs with a new eye.
interesting - no forms, just the right machinery.
I hate construction but I do like that house behind all the machines.
Now that was interesting. I've never thought about how they make curbs today. :)
Very interesting. You are just in the right spot at the right time. MB
Oh, yes, it is interesting...can you just imagine the time it saves with not having to build forms? Never mind the manpower it saves.
Looks like some fine curbing is going on! Great photos of the event!
Ah yes. I'm a civil engineer who designs roads, so I'm very familiar with this machine. It's very intersting to watch it in action.
yes, that is quite interesting. :)
very very interesting. i have never seen it done before either.

All you need is the right machinery! It is an interesting procedure! Have a happy week!
Very mechanized. Here the scene would have been different.
Quite a lot of machinery for a curb.
Hi Those are some BIG machines.
Great pictures, lots of hard work is going on there!
