Darryl McDowall, Mullumbimby

In the last few days the dangerously deep holes in the road on Stuart Street, Mullumbimby were fixed by the Byron Shire road crew.

As usual, barely mixed gravel was shovelled into the enormous potholes and the gravel was not even compressed to be even with the rest of the road. Several vehicles have then driven over the gravel which has now spread out and is helping to create more potholes.

This excuse for road fixing has been going on for years in our shire and has created some of the most shocking roads in Australia. It is surely time to replace these so-called road builders.
