$500,000 Emergency Pothole Repair program announced

Thursday, 24 February

Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg today announced an extra $500,000 of funding for emergency pothole repairs on some of our worst roads.

“My team and I were elected on a platform of fixing our road network, and that’s what we are doing,” Mayor Krieg said.

“When Council’s new General Manager John Walker was appointed, I told him his first job was to find money in the existing budget to start the huge job of repairing our roads.

“Today both the Council and John have delivered with a pothole repair program that will put a dent in the list of our most urgent roads in need of repair.

“This is about listening to our community and prioritising how Council spends ratepayers’ money.”

“We are also lobbying the State Government for a large one-off grant to start tackling the $97 million road maintenance backlog that we have inherited. I would like to thank our State Member for Lismore, Janelle Saffin, for her assistance with this.

“I have already met with the NSW Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Sam Farraway, and although no promises have been made, I am always hopeful.

“We have a long way to go, but by working together this Council can achieve a lot.”
