To sort out the mess unravelling at the moment in and around the scene of the road repair
Whilst engaged in a usual day to day job of asphalt spreading, a team of road repairers in the centre of [a named location appropriate to your needs] have come to a halt in their work, due to strange and very dangerous holes that have appeared in and around the road repair site. The asphalt people have located an emergency team, who it is hoped, can give some answers. It appears that the whole road system will need to be investigated with the additional problem concerning the people in the immediate locality. The local people will have to be made safe as well as made aware of the implications of the events as they return home from work.
