HOT TOPICS: Demand payout for cars damaged by roadworks

GREATER Springfield motorists are demanding the State Government pay up for damage to their cars caused by Centenary Highway roadworks.

Big Rigs readers shared their thoughts on the state of the Queensland road.

Troy Armfield: "I drove up that road the other day when this was happening. Two choices. Shut the road until the loose stones are picked up (had just been laid over the bitumen) or lay it and pick up the loose stones in sections to reduce traffic congestion. If ya don't tailgate you won't have an issue.”

Allan Vicary: "With the money we pay in rego there is no need for the condition of our roads. It's the government lining there own pockets first.”

Chris Guascoine: "How about compensation for damage to our cars from the condition and state of disrepair all levels of government allow the roads to get to.”

Glenn Whitley: "It should have bitumen, not sprayed with tar and loose stones put on top. They do it that way because it's a cheaper option. Maybe if more motorists, both car and truck, took up class action against councils then they'd start doing it properly!”

Geoff Kerr: "How do you prove that the damage was done on that particular stretch of road?”
