New potholes 'appear every day'

WARWICK residents are fed up with the state of the road on Cleary St, with deep potholes smothering the asphalt.

With the recent wet weather, the potholes have worsened, making it both dangerous and painful for motorists.

One Warwick resident said driving to her house had become a dreaded task each day.

"I hurt my back playing sport so every pothole hurts to drive over," she said.

She said it wasn't just a case of slowly driving over them.

"They are so deep. They're not just a little bump - the whole car shudders," she said.

She said the potholes were popping up everywhere.

"There are at least six big ones in a row there," she said.

"One appears almost every day; they just come out of nowhere."

A Southern Downs Regional Council spokeswoman said the potholes should have been repaired yesterday.

"Council was aware of them, but a failure on another section of the network meant we had to redirect crew," she said.
