Peter Godfrey - Acting Director City Services 

A pothole at Airport Road, Armstrong Creek was reported to the City at 1:30pm on Friday 1 September 2017.   

The City’s road maintenance workers attended the site on Friday afternoon to fill the pothole, ensuring the road would be safe for motorists to use over the weekend.  

Maintenance crews will return to the site on Monday to permanently repair the road.  

The City of Greater Geelong is on the front foot in its approach to road maintenance and repair across our region with a dedicated team of workers during business and after hours.

The city also encourages members of the wider community to be our second set of eyes and report any road hazards to ensure the City’s roads remain safe for the community’s use.

As the largest regional Council in Victoria, the City maintains more than 2000 kilometres of Council roads, approximately the distance from Geelong to Alice Springs.

Last year, the City’s patching trucks laid out approximately 2300 tonnes of asphalt, repairing anything from singular potholes to major dig outs up to 125-square-metres.

Members of the community can report potholes or any other potential road safety problem to the City of Greater Geelong hotline on 03 5272 5272, online by logging a report, by email at contactus@geelongcity.vic.gov.au or by visiting any of the City’s Customer Services Centres.
