Doubts again have been raised about the usefulness of temporary repairs in parts of Dunedin’s roading network.
He had noticed the surface breaking up on roads in Waldronville.
Mr Weatherall’s comments at a board meeting on Wednesday came just over a week after Dunedin city councillor Mike Lord slated some work by contractors in the Mosgiel-Taieri area as ‘‘crap’’.
New council transport delivery manager Ben Hogan said short-term repairs were sometimes the most suitable treatment.
He conceded the state of city roads had deteriorated and needed to improve.
Much of Waldronville’s network is due to be resurfaced in 2023-24.
