As well as improving the quality of local roads, Orange City Council is working to improve the community’s understanding of how local roads are managed and how repairs happen.
There’s a common community perception that pot holes shouldn’t ever happen, and that when they do it’s a sign of badly-built road.
Both these views are wide of the mark, according to the crews who work on local roads every day.
A couple of years ago, last time it was as wet as this, Orange City Council was dealing with lots of pothole repairs.
The Council made a series of videos, telling the story from the point of view of the crews who repair pot holes in the streets of Orange.
This video reveals that pot holes are inevitable.
