Anything else just isn't Enterprise enough.

Watch these guys work

This is why German roads are so good. Even the manholes are level with the surface to a tolerance of 5mm.

I clicked on OP's link with interest. After five minutes of commercial that I could not cue forward or skip, and no end in site of these commercials before I could watch OP's video, I closed the tab.

YouTube is very aggressive with these extremely long commercials. Even broadcast TV doesn't show more than 5 minutes of unskippable commercials per 30 seconds or however much it is of actual content.

OK, I was able to see the film.

It shows a car passing over a manhole which is maybe 1/4 inch below the road. The car's suspension suppresses most of the impact, but the cover rattles.

Then some guys show up. They remove the cover, and inscribe a radius. They replace the cover and use a saw to cut the asphalt around the radius. They remove the cover again. They then bring in a machine that goes in the hole, expands, and allows them to use a crank to remove the liner that held the cover in place.

Then they use jackhammer like things to slice off the surrounding asphalt. The debris is put in a can. A German voice then talks about how sewages work. They then put in a new hole cap, then a sleeve to protect it while they add new asphalt and hammer it down up to a depth of about 4 inches below grade. Then they add another outer liner and heat it with torches. Then they add more asphalt up to grade level. The German woman then reads from a book that talks about 5mm maximum divergence from grade.

The asphalt sleeve is removed and a new cover assembly placed in. Then more asphalt. Then a vibrator to smooth things. A level is used to check if it is all at the correct grade. The newer assembly has a sort of level adjustment that with the help of a special tool allows them to fine tune the final level of the cover. Also shown is that there's a sort of inset below the cover. Finally we are shown a film of vehicles passing over these covers. The cover does not vibrate and the vehicles do not sink at all.

If they're so good, how did it get all fucked up in the first place?
