OK i may be a bit late with this one as i would presume and expect the main roads dept. have fixed the problem but last sunday i drove up to Gin Gin and the Bruce highway from Gympie to Gin Gin was littered with potholes, some where quite severe, i am actually surprised i didnt come across any road carnage, so anyone travelling that stretch this weekend be careful, i have no idea what the road is like north of Gin Gin.

They are still there.........they have been busy trying to fix all the potholes but the Bruce highway is always going to have pot holes.

Yeah Kev for sure but these where horrendous, the dirt road i have lived on for the past 20 years has never been as bad as the Bruce was on that day.

I heard that a bloke travelling up the Bruce Hwy with a load of postholes lost a few in that area. They must have bleep tered on impact with the road causing the potholes.

Yeah I did Brissy to Hervey Bay last weekend and it was shocking. Nearly had a head on with some moron swerving onto our side of the road to miss a pothole in the pouring rain.

Yep dylan was raining the day i went up, i swerved a few times but when there was no oncoming traffic which made me realise just how dangerious the situation was, forgot to mention there was a sign just north of gympie saying potholes to maryborough but they got worse after maryborough, and some where so bad they could blow a tyre or put a vehicle out of control.

I travel this section nearly every day (truck and dog trailer 36t) and this section of road has to bee one of the worst I know for the volume of traffic it carries.
MainRoads patches the holes very rarely stamps them down or rolls them and a few days later or after heavy rain they are back at it again. Suppose it keeps them in work
The underside of my truck and trailer have a nice coat of bitumen(shame I dont take this unit on the beach)
