I don't know exactly when it was done, but one day last week, I suddenly noticed quite a lot of small blobs of asphalt, dabbed apparently at random on the pavement. (if they've been around longer and I've not noticed then mea culpa).
When I say random, I mean, as in there are still as many or more potholes, both bigger and smaller than the ones that were patched.
It was pretty clear that the patches weren't going to last long, but even this evening I discovered two that had already completely crumbled into pieces.
|This was the worst one. Totally destroyed.|
|This one was heading in the same direction.|
Joined-up government? We still have an awful long way to go.
