Transcript / متن فایل صوتی

Richard:        It’s been almost impossible to do this week’s recording and that’s because of the terrible noise out.................... outside the house.

Jackie:         Yeah, in fact for the last few weeks, the street outside our house has been turned into a building site, so we’re talking about what’s making all the noise. You can’t hear yourself think sometimes. [Richard: Mmm] So what are they doing?

Richard:        Well, basically, they’re digging a huge trench along the road so it’s impossible for anything to pass. Very, very deep and they’re putting in new pipes.

Jackie:         Yeah, one for the water and one for the sewage.

Richard:         Yes. The old water pipe which was put in years ago...

Jackie:         Probably the 1930s when the village was built.

Richard:        Yes. It’s always leaking so it definitely needed to be replaced.

Jackie:         Yeah. And for the sewage, now at the moment each house has its own sewage system which is basically a hole in the ground.

Richard:        Yes, a cesspit. But er.. so we’re going to get a whole new sewage system.

Jackie:         Right, so Richard, what’s been making the noise?

Richard:        Well, it’s basically, it’s the earth moving equipment and the biggest and the noisiest has been the excavator.

Jackie:         Yeah, now so that’s the one with the very, very long arm that’s been digging out the trench.

Richard:        Exactly, yes. And also the village... the village is built on rock so for much of the time it has what looks like a large pencil on the end and that’s called a breaker to break up the rocks in the ground.

Jackie:         The noise, and the vibration from that, is just horrendous. The whole house shakes.

Richard:        And at other times it has a great big bucket on the end for also bashing the rocks as well.

Jackie:         And that... that looks likes it’s got big teeth at the end.
