Council maintains 2,445km of road network, both sealed and unseal – the equivalent distance from Sydney to Cairns.
Council’s Roads Team works hard to ensure our network is in the best possible condition, however traffic movements and environmental factors, particularly during periods of adverse weather, present major challenges on such an extensive network.
If you’re aware of road damage, including potholes, please report it immediately to Council by phone, email or lodging a Report a problem request on Council’s website. It takes just a few minutes to do this and will ensure it is registered as an action item for Council.
Roads authorities including councils, cannot be held liable for all incidents that occur on a road network. It is extremely rare for councils to be liable to pay for damage caused as a result of colliding with a pothole.
Why is it challenging to make a claim against Council for damage caused by a pothole?
