Council’s drone footage of road resurfacing goes viral 114 video https://img.vidible.tv/prod/2017-01/11/587592527ca576062f6963fd_o_F_v1.jpg A video produced by the 2,500-person strong shire of Moora in Western Australia has attracted more than 14m views for its strangely satisfying depiction of a road being built. The footage captured by drone shows the strip of road being sprayed with bitumen, then covered with gravel from reversing trucks. Shire of Moora’s chief executive Alan Leeson told the WA Today he thought the town’s Facebook page had been hacked after views went through the roof. ‘We had a lot of views by Christmas, might have been about 5,000 which we thought, “Geez that’s a lot”, but around New Year it just took off,’ he said. ‘We thought, ‘oh we’ve been hacked, but it’s all been checked out’.
