The curves and filling-in are being skilfully painted. The chap on the left is ready with the dispenser of glass beads that give the road marking its reflectiveness.
Painting road markings, as observed

Hot white road paint from a smoking tank on a wagon is dispensed into a jug. The operative pours from the jug into a spreader while drawing it along, guided by a straightedge or chalked lines. While the paint is still tacky, small glass beads are broadcast over it to make it reflective. The paint is cold and set in a very short time.
