A DRIVER frustrated by potholes at the intersection of Sutton Street and Stoddarts Road in Warragul has spelt out their anger with spray paint.
Above: one of the marked potholes.
Fluorescent paint was used to circle potholes and deliver the message “FIX IT” to road authorities. It appears the potholes in the crumbling road have been marked in the past.
The section of road has been in a bad state of disrepair for some time, a situation familiar to many people across Baw Baw.
This is not the first time locals have shown their frustration about damaged roads – in August potholes in Longwarry North were quickly repaired after a flower pot was left in one, complete with flowers.
Spray paint pothole protests are an international trend. Earlier this year in Britain activist “Wanksy” drew penises around pot holes to accelerate repair works. Their attempts were successful.
