Oh yes, I have seen that first time, on Phuket, while they widened the Chao Fah West road. About 20 years ago.

And thought "oh, they start reusing the tarmac, but: No, they just took one layer down, so that they have been on the same level, as the new stretch. And after, they did put sand on both parts, on the sandy part and on the grinded taremac. And liquid tarmac on top, to stabilize the sand and hold it together. Before they started to realy tarmac ALL of the road, on a km or more, in one time. A couple of weeks later!

They needed the machines somewhere else, I guess. 

And after that, they just used it before traffic lights. to not have to refill the wheel ruts with to much fresh tarmac ;-) It is easier to do another surface  on the old one.

Much of all the the biggest majority of the work I see is not even needed. Just filling someone’s pocket. After Covid they tried to call it kick starting and stimulating the economy, but as I saw it there were less than 10 - 15 people total spread out working on the project. So stimulating the economy was a sour taste and BS.
