Nice to see Gordie Mann was involved.  Those are some serious PVC pipes.  Is that fibre?  When were the photos taken, simply out of curiousity?


Photos of the fibre optic cable were taken December 7, 2011.

For  a minute there, i thought they might have been the pipes laid in 1894 from Esquimalt Water Works, much to the chagrin of the City of Victoria which raised the case to the Supreme Court...

The new Boom Gates...


I was waiting to post this with a balcony shot but I haven't got around to it.  Agreed, they look much better than the old yellow ones.  I like the whole silver and gray steel and concrete look to the project overall.  But when oh when are they going to put in the pedestrian guardrails?





More Boom Gate shots...


Both east and west sides.  Even the MUD is getting a proper set of gates.  The final shot show both the old and new gates in the same frame.
