There is a new game going on in the city, jointly invented by the council and Amey.
First very highly trained people who can identify potholes drive around and when they find these they mark them yellow.
The a second team of people, less skilled because they are not trained to find these potholes, follow along and fill them in.
So two teams of people, two lots of transport, yellow paint, all expensive. But the sting is that the “fillers” never catch the markers, so many months after the potholes were marked the paint has worn away. So it starts again.
