Write-In 2019: 'Serving the city.' by Grace Palmer

When Piotr checked the cameras that morning the traffic pathways were jammed, the bunched cars blocked and choking the city. He changed the traffic light phasing with a simple press, felt the thrill. Chaos could be restored.

His actions affected millions, his secret service to the motorist. His logic, his planning and his decisions kept the cars moving so that the roads, like rivers flowed. In the afternoon he finished his CV for the Highways Engineer role. Misty eyed with a mug of tea and an apple he finished his covering letter. Promotion: compulsory purchase, bringing in the diggers,  autocad designs to free up capacity, designing the systems to help asthmatics, the yellow hard hat for the photos.
