Department of Public Works Update #2 2017

Here it is – another soundbite and photo montage from the team presently on site and building our city. Reporting from the windswept desert – where things are going well, and there’s been a lot of extreme weather – here’s H, reporting (sort of live) from a busy Tankwa Town:

Lastly, after braving the storms while camped on the Island of Rebar on the bank of Lake Tankwa and cut off by the Binnekring River, DPW would like to remind you that if you camp beyond the “No camping beyond this point” signs (as pictured below) you WILL drown. They have seen it. They know it. No jokes.

This is for your own safety. Flash floods are no fun.
