Yellow with Gray Triangle

Cracks and spaulding developed in the curbing near where I work.
Workmen came out a month or so ago to make repairs,
They semi-carefully cut the damaged concrete curbing away
with diamond-tipped saw blades, then filled the
resulting gash with of mending concrete.
Here, against the older and new bits of yellow paint,
the triangle helps to create both a bit of tension
and attention for a bit of curbside art.
The repaired bit shown below was done
several years ago. The workmen either realized 
the triangle would make a stronger repair,
or that two cuts only made for
a quicker job, requiring less work.

Speedway, your local workmen ought to get an arts grant. They're prodigiously talented.

The art and science of roadworks... Does your works department know that they have such an appreciative audience?

I do like the interplay of colours here.
