Locals have raised concerns over the condition of Cullulla Road following a fatal motorcycle crash last weekend.
On Sunday morning, a 40-year-old ACT man was killed on Cullulla Road, Lower Boro, 40km south of Goulburn. The man was travelling with a group of motorcyclists when he ran off the road and crashed into a tree between Lumley and Sandy Point Roads.
"I think it was an accident waiting to happen," Caroline Campbell, who lives on Cullulla Road, said. "It's narrow; it's winding; it's in terrible condition.
"The only thing that's surprising to me and to anyone [who lives nearby] is that it didn't happen sooner."
This is not the first time someone has been killed on Cullulla Road. In 2016, an ACT driver was killed in similar circumstances when his car left the road and hit a tree on Cullulla Road at Lower Boro, near the intersection with Willow Glen Road.
Resident Marianne Ronayne said at the time that the road was "hell waiting to happen". Thirty people had been injured in a bus crash on the Sandy Point Road bend at Windellama, and a man was hospitalised when his trailer lost control at the same spot.
Following Mrs Ronayne's complaints, Goulburn Mulwaree Council tried to fix the accident blackspot by realigning the dangerous section of road.
Ms Campbell believes that council needs to maintain Cullulla Road.
"It's full of potholes. The edges are falling away after the rain. There are sections where whole bits have fallen away."
The road is used by heavy trucks on weekdays and by Canberra traffic on weekends.
"There are a lot of near misses, so most locals know what to expect, and are kind of prepared for it," Ms Campbell said.
Police are still investigating the death. A Goulburn Mulwaree Council spokesperson said: "A Police investigation is underway, and Council understands that at this stage, there is no indication that the road was a contributing factor to this accident."
