SEVERAL large potholes on Abernethy Road will be repaired in a bid to improve road conditions for Byford shoppers.

Shire president Michelle Rich said recent heavy rainfall had caused the potholes to form near the entrance to Coles and Woolworths at the Byford Village Shopping Centre.

“We’ve prioritised these repairs because the current state of the road is impeding traffic flow and that’s causing disruption as drivers enter and exit the shopping centre,” Cr Rich said.

“Some repairs have already been made, however, more permanent work will be undertaken by a specialist contractor.

“Unfortunately heavy rainfall does occasionally cause potholes and we just need to be on the front foot when it comes to identifying and fixing those which disrupt traffic.

“This particular stretch of road is already undergoing a significant upgrade, however, this issue required immediate attention and we were not prepared to delay repairs.”

Potholes can be reported to the Shire on 9526 1111 or at info@sjshire.wa.gov.au.
