Surrey quick to hit the street

Many thanks to the City of Surrey for its rapid response to my request, on behalf of our strata, to improve street drainage at the corner of McBeth and Flower.

The day after I visited the engineering department at the new city hall, our site had been surveyed. Within a couple of days, the old curb had been dug out and a new drainage ditch had been made.

A few more days, and a new drain and drainpipe had been added, and soon after that, the new curb was put in. Thanks, city staff.
