Sydney roads after all the rain.

one word: POTHOLE!

It's so ugly out there, anyone else noticing a lot more holes in the road after all the rain we've had the last few months?

There's a monster on the 3rd lane from the left heading north across the harbour bridge, they're everywhere, feels like i'm going to break a wheel.

Councils gave up repairing roads a long time ago in Sydney. I still cant believe we have concrete roads, they are fucking pathetic.

The harbour bridge, unbelievable. A friggin goat track - I hate sydney roads with a PASSION!

I have to disagree. The shithole that was Collaroy/Long Reef was fixed a few months ago. I remember the CONSTANT 'Ku-chunk, ku-chunk, ku-chunk" going over those damn concrete blocks.

But I do agree. Sydney roads suck.

Similar problems happened in Bris Vegas a month or so ago when we had a few weeks of big downpours.

Agree that Councils really run out of funding to fix roads, and obtaining night work approval from DECC is making night road work even harder.

Using concrete pavement here becoz of the high % of heavy vehicles usage and concrete regid type pavement will give almost a double of service life compare to asphalt/bituman flexi type pavement. If councils using flexi type pavement for local roads, then you will see repaving roadwork every night, which could be even worse.

Harbour Bridge... well they should rebuild it long time ago. See the "jumpform" under the bridge? it does the repair from one to the other end, and keep repeating. The repairs on the bridge will never end...

I hate Sydney Road too, and they will be hardly improved. The gov just wasted too much money on unneccessary things.

The attempt to fix pot holes near where I live is pathetic, I have had the joy of watching a repair in progress. Truck moves slowly along road with idiot standing in the back, stop at pothole, idiot pours warm tar into hole then throws a shovel of gravel on top, truck drives back and forward over mess a few times and off to next pothole. For the following hours every car driving over "repair" picks up all the gravel and tar and sprays it over a 10m area, by next day pothole has appeared again possibly even deeper than the day before.

Actually. if cars are damaged by these pot holes, like tire punched or shocks damage, would the council pay for the repair? I got my skyline long time ago, the HKS coilovers damaged because of these unexpected holes, plus the wheel also slightly bended.... =___=" Anyone get similar experience?
