A Kergunyah road is purportedly in worse condition than it was before works were done to it as part of the Roads to Recovery Program.
Nicole Oakes lives on Jarvis Lane where the works were completed in 2018 and she wants to know how $23,000 was spent to worsen the quality of the road.
"It was definitely better before, 100 per cent better," she said.
"After the storm we had here in 2018 half of the gravel just floated away and it was back to the bare dirt/clay.
"The new gravel was on the road for less than a year and that was at the end of 2018 and there hasn't been much spent on it at all."
Ms Oakes has safety concerns for the road given accidents have happened, including when the garbage truck slid out of control and had to be dug out.
She believes that Indigo Council have not maintained the road to a satisfactory standard.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Indigo Council said they have completed "grade and minor maintenance works as required" and that 40 metres of the road was recently graded by a contractor.
Indigo Council also stated that recent rainfall had corrugated some sections of the road.
"They'll come and they'll skip across the top of things and they might dig one of two new drains but will they dig out all the rest of the drains that already exist so that the water actually runs off the side of the road? No," Ms Oakes said.
"I wouldn't expect it to be perfect all the time but I just think if you're going to spend that amount of money on the road and then not maintain it, what am I paying rates for?
"We don't get anything else for it, they're supposed to just come and maintain the road basically."
Ms Oakes said that she has complained to council about the condition of the road but she's never been given concrete answers or assurances.
"I'm just emailing their info person every now and then asking them what's going on and I usually get told that they're going to pass it along and that someone will get back to me, which they never do."
Ms Oakes said May 1, 2020 was the last time she had received any communication from Indigo Council regarding the state of Jarvis Lane.
In the email she was told the road would be returned to pre-storm condition.
Ms Oakes said that she is of the belief that had residents been approached about the works that they would have advised council to use the money elsewhere.
"It's almost like they could have just given that money to the residents and we could have gotten a dozer in and done it ourselves because the job isn't really getting done."
