I would like to know the difference between 'to' and 'on' when they are used with 'repair' as I saw these sentences in a dictionary;
- repairs to the roads
- His job is to make minor repairs on all the machines.
Is it possible to substitute one for the other?
Repair to can be used in BrE to mean go- shall we repair to a bar?, often with terms like hostelry instead of pub- it's mostly used when inviting someone for a drink.
