Fix our ROADS

Karl from Spotswood

Can anyone tell me when the NPDC is going “FIX OUR ROADS” Especially on the truck routes!
While driving around my little town, I notice streets with sections full of roadwork signs and cones, but there’s no apparent work being done so why are these road cones and signs left behind. Then there’s potholes with no signage or cones.
And can someone please let me know what is happening with the stadium?
