Additional State funds available on application for pothole repairs

The NSW Government has committed to providing an additional $50 million to help regional and rural councils fix the increasing number of potholes brought on by this year’s extreme wet weather.

Under the new Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round Eurobodalla and Bega councils can apply for funding to help address the highest priority pothole repairs.

Both councils combined have some of the largest road networks in the state and have been hit hard by this relentless wet weather that continues to make the situation tough for repair teams.

This additional support will help South East councils boost the resources they can draw upon to repair our most damaged roads.

NSW has had more than its fair share of natural disasters and extreme weather and that more than 135,000 potholes have been repaired on State roads in regional NSW since February.

Applications for funding are open for two weeks from today with funding announced in November so councils can begin work as soon as possible.
