I don't have any first hand knowledge just what I have read, potholes seem to be increasing in size and it will take months to just do patchwork. RTA are saying they have put 200 extra workers with machinery in the affected areas.

Welcome to GN's Forom JGC,
Heaps of delays while they are repairing whole sections of roads in January - but it will be worth it in the long run.

A warm welcome from me also, JGC

I travelled along a section of the Newell Highway, from West Wyalong, to Coonabarabran, in January this year

I found it OK, but drove to the road conditions, most of the main potholes were marked, and there was some roadworks

The edges of the bitumen were very wavey, at places, and there were plenty of speed restrictions

The main problem, was that some of the pot holes were hidden within the shadows of the trees, and hard to spot, from a distance
