Orange paint

Someone has been on Stour bridge and circled some of the worst areas in orange paint, presumably this means something will get done. This should be a yay moment, except as I could have guessed these markings only ring the areas that are actually subsiding and can be fixed by the old method of 'a bit of tar and the back of a shovel to tamp it down'. All the areas further up which are tearing, but haven't yet fallen, have been ignored.

So fill these areas that I pointed out were tearing back in August 08 and ignore those areas which are going to become exactly what you're repairing now. This isn't maintenance, this is patching.
