No, it wasn't the HOLES that were filled, it was the (Royal) Albert Hall!

Trivia time: the holes referred to in the the song were potholes! John Lennon had read about them in a newspaper article.

I used to live near Blackburn, and trust me, fifty years later and not only have they maintained those four thousand holes, they've added plenty more!

Not that I'm still bitter about blowing a tyre in a pothole at 4am coming home from a shift in Blackburn a couple of years ago!
