There's been an absolute balls up in Penrith’s new Thornton housing estate.

The new estates have been built with roads too narrow for garbage trucks to fit down. So much so that the trucks have hit houses and garages trying to take the turns.

The problem is said to stem from the councils rush to solve the housing crisis and proper planning rules being neglected.

The Triple M Grill Team's (and unofficial mayor of Penrith) MG had his say on the balls up. Listen below.
