Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

POT­HOLES in Mt Druitt and Tregear have topped the list of trou­ble spots se­lected by read­ers in NewsLo­cal’s Neigh­bour­hood Res­cue cam­paign.

Res­i­dents have called for the patch­work of quick fixes in Duke St, Mt Druitt, to be re­placed with a com­pletely new sur­face.

Read­ers also said the pot­holes on Ellsworth Drive in Tregear, be­tween Lux­ford Rd and McMurdo Ave, needed at­ten­tion.

A Black­town Coun­cil spokes­woman said Duke St was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Roads and Mar­itime Ser­vices and the coun­cil would pass on the con­cerns. In re­gards to Ellsworth Drive and other coun­cil roads, she said all de­fects re­ported to the coun­cil were logged in its Cus­tomer Ac­tion Re­quest sys­tem un­der a “unique iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber” and res­i­dents could keep track of its progress.

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to re­port con­cerns to the coun­cil by call­ing 9839 6000.

We will let you know how things progress in fu­ture edi­tions. The next topic we will fo­cus on is street light­ing.

We want to hear from you about where there is a need for re­pairs.
