Council is responsible for local roads, and most street and car park signs.
To report a problem to Council, including potholes or damaged footpaths, call
4732 7552 or fill in our
online pothole reporting form.
We work with a range of local and regional organisations as well as the
Roads and Maritime Services and NSW Police to improve safety and awareness on our roads - see

Major roads including the M4, Great Western Highway, Cranebrook Road, Elizabeth Drive, Erskine Park Road, Mamre Road and Mulgoa Road are the responsibility of the state rather than Council - including traffic signals, school zone and 50km/h signs and regulatory signs - visit
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) or phone
131 700 (RMS Road Maintenance Hotline).

See what roads and paths Council is planning to build or improve in the coming year in our
Delivery Program 2017-18 (pdf 5MB). A safe and convenient road and pathway network is a high priority for Council and our community. Our annual programs and budgets include maintenance work and new projects.
We encourage you to have your say about community plans, policies and issues that will shape our City's future...
