Down to cost again codders I think. Have you seen a catseye out of the ground? Chunky great metal backing box with the rubber unit inserted and glass 'eyes' set into metal holders. Hardly as cheap as plastic self adhesive thingies with scotch reflective tape on the edges.

Sorry mate but our roads are so poor even the new European countries have equivalent road surfaces.

That Zebraflex appears to be a specific type of surfacing, whereas 'Shellgrip' is more of a generic term. Some blurb here:

You can tell it's too cold and windy to take the boats out by the level of activity in the 'Other Stuff' section
