Following recent wet weather, I have received correspondence from many residents reporting potholes across our Road Conditions network.

I would like to assure residents that Council’s crews and contractors are working very hard to maintain roads for our residents.

Council’s crews are responding to a higher than usual number of requests and are inspecting key roads on a regular basis. All hazards reported are attended to quickly after a report is received, with Council staff undertaking work to make safe. Works conducted to make safe are not always the final repair.

Many roads require more significant repairs than simply filling in a pothole, they require heavy patching which is conducted by contractors. Across Sydney, there is a very high demand for the relevant contractors, so while numerous jobs have been scheduled, it may take some time to complete every job.

If you see a pothole, can you please let Council know via the ‘Report it to Council’ section of our website…/Report-Request-to

Potholes are attended to fastest if they are reported in the correct manner through our website. Council’s maintenance team does not monitor social media, and Snap Send Solve does not always come through with complete information.

I would like to thank residents for their co-operation and understanding. I would also like to express my gratitude to residents who have written to me to thank our teams looking after our roads.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][us_image image=”83513″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
