Recent heavy rain causes issues with Bass Highway


The Department of State Growth has advised recent heavy rain has caused potholes and other issues along many parts of the Bass Highway.

The department says a number of roadworks have also been suspended due to the weather, but it is working hard to maintain the condition of the road surface.

A 60 kilometre an hour speed limit will remain in place near the Ampol service station at Sassafras until repairs can be affected, at the contractor's expense under warranty.

Motorists can report road problems they see through the department's 24/7 hotline on 1300 139 933.
