Is there a surplus of black Tarmac?

Is Fred Karno alive and well and working for the council and highways authority?

Monday morning and traffic lights appear once again on the Marina whilst engineers rip up a perfect unblemished and nearly new section of pavement in front of De La Warr. Asking a employee why I was told: “It was the wrong colour should have been black not red.” If the council have a surplus of black Tarmac to get rid of might I suggest they use it to fill the numerous potholes in Bexhill’s roads or is that too simplistic to think of?
