Hills Mayor Announces Largest Road Maintenance Budget

Hill Shire Council has approved its largest road maintenance and renewals budget.  With a third consecutive La Niña, it has been a very wet few years – and all across NSW, this is causing a deterioration in the quality of the road network.

The Council’s road asset maintenance and renewal budget has been increased by an additional $2.4m to tackle the number of potholes brought on by the record-breaking wet weather.

Pothole repair requests have almost tripled since prior to the La Niña. In 2019, Council received 1680 requests to fix potholes and this has grown to 4783 requests in 2022, with two months in the year still to go.

If you see a pothole, please report them to Council via the ‘Report it to Council’ section of their website https://www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/…/Report-Request-to…

“I would like to once again thank our residents for reporting potholes and I would also like to thank our crews and contractors who have been working flat out to serve our residents.” said Mayor Gangemi.
