Driving around Northern Rivers roads at all but 5kms – it’s a bloody nightmare.

The other week I had to replace two tyres, I suspect from all the potholes/portals in the roads. I know two shires are fixing this problem, but in the meantime, before I or someone else does more tyres, could those other shires please fill the potholes/portals?

I commend the shires that are spending ratepayers’ hard earned for doing the road works that are in progress.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had tyres blow out because of the potholes/portals, am I folks?
