The four-kilometre section of road has not been repaired for a number of years, according to FHH Operation Manager, Phil Tombs, and some 6000 vehicles travel this road every day.

The road has been affected by years and years of flooding and overloaded vehicles. Both have caused the deterioration of the road, making it impossible for motorists to avoid the numerous potholes.

The seven-men FHH crew has completed stabilising and sealing the first 500 metres of the road, with the remaining section still undergoing rehabilitation.
