Our local road network has suffered significant damage following the February and March floods. We ask motorists to please drive to road conditions and be patient as we undertake the enormous task of fixing our roads.
We have logged more than 2,600 repair jobs across the Tweed and this does not include other road maintenance items, such as potholes, that were not the direct result of flood action.
For weekly updates on how the Tweed is recovering and rebuilding, please read our weekly flood recovery update.
You can also find more information about the progress of repairs on significant landslips on our roadworks and closures page – this includes slips at Scenic Drive, Tyalgum Road, Kyogle Road, Reserve Creek Road, Limpinwood Road and Mount Warning Road.
Nobody likes potholes. They’re one of the most common resident complaints across the country, particularly after wet weather. How well do you understand what creates potholes?
Here’s a snapshot:
When the pavement is badly damaged we need to rehabilitate the road. This is when we bring in the heavy machinery, dig up the existing road surface and pavement and bring the road back to good as new.
Large scale road repairs are not possible during wet weather so our maintenance and rehabilitation crews patch potholes using the best available product.
You can report a pothole online. Please don't use social media to report problems or issues.
