New water mains are being laid. The bottom end near the statue is closed. Cars are diverted around by Merlin's Bar into the old town and then along Rua de Outubro.

Local buses, the red bus tour and tourist transfer coaches cannot go that way so the stop by the statue is not being used. Also the stop on Rua Coronel Aguas near the Rocamar hotel is also out of use. Nearest alternative bus stop for GIRO is up the road in Avenida do Ténis by the roundabout.

No idea how long this will last but it is a big trench!

Yeah, a water main, as in drinking water would normally be blue pipe. Black for waste/foul.

The sign definitely says 'abastimento' not 'esgotos'. Work is is going to last well into January I was told by a man in a hole.

Pass it quite regularly - not seen any activity for some time. Must just be the times I am there...

There were three JCB type vehicles parked up. I shall make a point of walking that way later on my way to Continente.

This morning. Not exactly a hive of activity, but the big yellow one was backfilling the top end of the main trench while two blokes were discussing what to do at the other end. Seems they have broken a water pipe in one place. The big black one is definitely a dran and there are all sorts being laid alongside.

The green is a cable duct used for Broadband or Fibre Optic cable. Black coil could be general purpose duct or a small diameter water main is there is a blue stripe on it. Ah the world of plastic pipe, such fun!Ermm

Probably! But the drains badly needed replacing after the most recent flooding. A big project is under way at that end of town to dig a big new interceptor tunnel and repair others. The object being to reduce the flow of surface water down the steep hills, which obviously isn't good for the lower parts.

During the roadworks, I now know that GIRO Linha Vermelha 2 is not serving the stops outside the Boavista Hotel, at the old Cemetery and Rua Coronal Aguas. Instead it is going direct from Jardim 1 to the stop in Avenide do Ténis. It will appear at that latter stop about 2 minute earlier than 'usual'.  This has of course not been announced in any way I have seen.

So far as I know Linha Vermelha 1 is still making the double circuit to stop at the Boavista and Cemetery but nothing stopping at Rua Coronal Aguas.

True regarding 2.

Regarding 1, it does still stop at Boa Vista but not sure where it goes after that. Think it might go down to the Marina but not sure. It certainly can’t go up the blocked road or the one way street past the school.

"Think it might go down to the Marina but not sur"

It does, or did anyway! After Boavista it stops at the old cemetery as usual, turns down the hill all the way to the marina, back up the main road to the Dolpins, past Jardim 1 for a second time before cutting through that narrow little street just beyond and back onto the normal route at the Avenida do Tênis stop.
