Cowra motorists asked to take care

Pot holed roads are something we may have to get used to if the current wet spell persists.

Cowra Shire Infrastructure and Operations Director George Ridley is urging motorists to take extra care on the flooded and pot holed roads explaining Council was doing all it could to keep the roads roadworthy.

“Basically we’re in maintenance mode, all capital works project are on hold,” Mr Ridley said.

“We haven't been able to do much for the last month, the rain has put our works program quite a long way behind.

”We’re Trying to keep on top of all the flooding, we’ve just about exhausted all our signs,” Mr Ridley said while warning motorist not to attempt to drive through flooded causeways.

A motorist had to be rescued from a causeway on Stoneyhill Road on Wednesday.

Speaking about the road damage Mr Ridley said council workers simply couldn’t get out to repair the pot holes.

“We can put signs out there but just can't get out their to repair them,” he said.

Cowra Shire Council is doing all it can to keep our roads roadworthy but works are being delayed as a result of the persistent rain.
