Pothole repairs prioritised after heavy rain

Published: 5 October 2022

Eurobodalla Council has diverted its seven road maintenance crews to pothole repairs after heavy rain and long weekend traffic made a mess of local roads.

The shire’s busiest local roads will be prioritised, like South Head Road and North Head Road in Moruya, George Bass Drive and Cullendulla Drive, and Dalmeny Drive in the shire’s south.

The Council says repairs will be temporary and won’t last long, but the aim is to reduce the risk of vehicle damage and potential for crashes in the short term.

More permanent repairs will be made once the roads dry out and equipment becomes available.

Hundreds of low-lying and roadside drains will also be cleared of leaf matter and debris to prevent potential flooding.

While a strong weather warning is forecast again this week, crews will work in the rain to make the necessary road repairs and unblock drains.

Mayor Mathew Hatcher says the state of the highway continues to be an issue, with the Transport for NSW work at Turlinjah, north of Bodalla, especially problematic.

The Mayor said Council staff will be in touch with Transport for NSW to request urgent repairs to potholes on the highway in the Eurobodalla.

Drivers are asked to slow down and take extra care on the roads, and to watch out for workers.
