CONT

Nous avons terminé tous les terrassements en déblais ou en remblais. Quels que soient les soins apportés au travail réalisé avec des engins, nous devons parfaire les mises à niveau définitives. Dressons le terrain à la pelle et à la pioche pour éliminer les plus grosses dénivellations restantes et non conformes au plan. Rélons ensuite "grosso modo" à la griffe ou à la bêche, ne serait-ce que pour détasser le sol à l'endroit des déblais ou des passages d'engins. Réglons enfin "définitivement" au râteau. Ce travail de règlement manuel est toujours indispensable, en particulier, pour la pose des canalisations. Seule, la construction des circulations peut être entièrement mécanisée.
