A SPRAY can-wielding Warragul driver had a little win this week with the patching of potholes they had graffitied earlier this month.

The anonymous local used fluorescent pink spray paint to circle potholes on the Sutton Street/Stoddarts Road intersection and wrote “FIX IT” beside them (click here for more). Earlier this week the worst damaged areas were patched.


Asked by the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen if the spray paint had prompted the repairs, a Baw Baw Shire spokesperson said temporary repairs were being made during the construction of a housing estate nearby.

“There are currently service installations being undertaken along Sutton Street by various utility authorities associated with the Emberwood subdivision development,” the spokesperson said in an email.

“While the works are ongoing, trafficable areas will continue to be made safe with temporary treatments.

“Following the completion of the roundabout construction and services installation, the road surface along Sutton Street will be reinstated, potentially prior to Christmas, if not early in the new year.”


The council has previously responded to pothole activism, promptly repairing a road in Longwarry North after a flower pot was left in a hole.

    Great to hear that the ‘pavement failure’ mess that constitutes Sutton Street will be repaired soon. I hope that it will be done properly, not a patchwork job. Somehow, knowing recent roadworks, that may just be wishful thinking…
