Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round

Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round

The $50 million Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round supplements existing funding and support additional efforts by local councils in the short-term repair of priority potholes and road repairs on local and regional roads.

The NSW Road network is over 180,000 kilometres in length, with local councils responsible for maintaining well over 85 per cent of this network. The Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round provides funding to alleviate the considerable cost being incurred by councils to maintain their local and regional roads to an acceptable standard, improving everyday journeys for regional communities.  

Recent weather events have increased the impact of potholes on local and regional roads, increasing the workload and cost for councils. This additional funding boost supplements the funding provided to councils through the Fixing Local Roads Program, assisting councils with their ongoing maintenance. 

Applications opened in October 2022 and closed on 8 November 2022 - 94 regional councils across NSW benefiting from funding in the Pothole Repair Round.

Eligible Local Government Bodies

The Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round was available to local government bodies in regional NSW. There were 95 regional local government bodies eligible for this program. Funding has been awarded following a simplified application process. The list of eligible regional councils and the two eligible entities can be found at Appendix 1 of the Program Guidelines. Funding has been allocated based on kilometres of Local and Regional Road network managed by councils.
