DRIVERS along a Woodford thoroughfare have found themselves in a sticky situation after a series of hot days caused the bitumen surface to melt.
Long shallow potholes have appeared along Bridge Road due to consecutive hot days, with road workers covering some areas with gravel as a temporary fix.
A VicRoads spokeswoman said the condition of the road was being investigated.
“We would like to remind motorists to slow down and drive to road conditions,” she said.
“We ask anyone who encounters problems on Victoria’s road network to contact the VicRoads traffic management centre on 131 170 and report any road problems, by citing the exact location, time and issue.”
Meanwhile, pedestrians along the Lady Bay promenade have noticed some concrete slabs have cracked or risen from normal levels.
A Warrnambool City Council spokeswoman said the concrete paving along the popular walkway was prone to heating up and expanding during summer, exposing flexible expansion strips between the slabs, which could be gradually worn away by sand.
“If the slab expands and the expansion joint is full of sand it can cause the slab to pop up,” the spokeswoman said.
“If this happens the council clears the joint and replaces both the slab and the expansion strip.”
