Nimbin's potholes of gold

WE love to hate our potholes around here. Of all the issues Lismore City Council gets hassled about, "fix the roads" stands head and shoulders above the rest at the top of the podium.

Inspired by the Olympics, the creative souls at Stoney Chute Road have rated all the potholes along their road either gold, silver or bronze and have set up a medal tally to keep track of them.

Local artist Roa Dart has added his creative flair to the road and some orthographically challenged person has created a sign that compares the road to a billiard table ("a hole on every corner").

Several years ago they had another sign declaring their potholes "heritage listed", but council removed it.

The resident who sent the photos to The Echo said although the signs were "a bit of fun", the road is "extremely dangerous".

Gold medal effort for highlighting the problem though.
