(1) What are the methods of fixing potholes used by Transport Canberra and City Services and the ACT Government.
(2) What are the costs associated with each method, including the average cost per job.
(3) What is the process for determining which method will be used to fix a pothole.
(4) Are any of the methods of fixing potholes (including staff or material) contracted or procured.
Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) Roads ACT repairs potholes using coldmix and hotmix asphalt.
(2) The average cost to repair a pothole using coldmix varies between $60 to $120. Hotmix asphalt costs can vary significantly depending on the depth and extent of repair required.
(3) For urgent and reactive repairs, coldmix asphalt is utilised. Generally, for planned repairs hotmix asphalt is utilised. The type of repair is also dependent on weather conditions.
(4) Yes. All required raw materials are supplied to Roads ACT for the patching of road defects. While Roads ACT delivers the majority of potholing works, at times contractors are engaged to provide additional resourcing. These arrangements are provided under relevant contracts or procurement activities. Roads ACT also procures machinery to aid the delivery of its works.
