More potholes patched

SCENIC Rim Regional Council has taken delivery of an asphalt patching truck that will assist in emergency works as result of the recent rain event.

The unit has a gross vehicle mass of 16.5 tonnes with an asphalt delivery unit and is the second machine of this type within council road-making fleet.

Mayor John Brent said council has been waiting 19 months for the asphalt patching machine and the timing couldn’t be better.

“This specialised piece of machinery couldn’t come at a better time to help get our road network back on its feet after the recent rain event,” Cr Brent said.

“The truck also complements council’s existing unit in delivering pothole patching, application of screening, small area sealing and gravel patching throughout the region.”

The asphalt patching unit, which cost $301,000, will be deployed to help with emergency works throughout the region this week and will support the ongoing delivery of maintenance of the road network into the future.
