Our good friend Umar Marwat sends this photo to be shared at ATP. Maintenance crew is seen using construction cones as hats on Motorway M2 (also see here and here). I wish the company who has hired this staff can atleast provide them with decent hats to save themselves from breeze and sun.

    OSHA type body in Pakistan? I don’t know I find humor in that question.

    On a side, the truck in the picture is a Bedford truck seen on every road and highway in Pakistan. I would like to know if this model is still being prduced. I wonder how the economy of the country would fare if this specific truck was taken away from the roads. It numbers in thousands and does major hauling both at the macro and micro level. Going by memory, I never saw this truck, often overloaded to the max , do more than 80km/hr on the highway. In the mid 90s, I remember, there was a growing competition from Isuzu and Hino to Bedford but its numbers never seemed to dwindle. Any one has any takes on its basic 6 cylinder diesel (I think it is 3000 cc) engine?

  3. wonderful picture! they found solution from available resources instead blaming to company :)

    Aamer, you are right again. From the photo we cannot conclude whether these are Govt employees or private contractors. The post doesn’t make such a claim either. Just a wish that these workers were given decent hats to ward off sun and breeze.

    There is also a possibility that workers are wearing cones as a ‘satement’ to show-off or catch attention but it is less likely,
