Wesley Avenue residents have described Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's kerb and guttering works in their street as "third world maintenance works" and a "debacle".
To make matters worse, one side of the popular street has been without kerb and guttering for the lifespan of the street.
Residents have written to council asking for a meeting.
In their letter the residents say they would meet with council along with other owners to "resolve what is becoming an unsustainable debacle".
But council says the works were maintenance only.
A spokesperson said the works were maintenance works undertaken in response to immediate roadside drainage issues resulting from a blocked inlet pipe and silted up edge drain.
"The focus of the works was to unblock the stormwater pipe and table drain adjacent to the road," the spokesperson said.
"Because these works were maintenance only, the intention was not to provide kerb and gutter in this location."
The spokesperson said council does not have a plan to construct kerb and guttering on Wesley Avenue. However residents say they were of the understanding there was a plan for the works to be carried out.
"Our capital works budget is published on our website - kerb and guttering is not budgeted as a separate line item," the spokesperson added.
Wesley Avenue resident for two decades Belinda Rodger described the road words as "third world country".
"It is an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment that this is the standard council can offer us," she said.
"Particularly after so many years of problems with this roadway."
Another resident raised his concerns over the ad-hoc nature of the works which has made it dangerous for vehicles to reverse out of their driveways.
Fellow residents Ben and Laura Morton also say that a number of single to multi-dwellings have been constructed or are about to commence in the street.
"Yet Port Macquarie-Hastings Council still haven't completed appropriate road and stormwater works to the remaining properties, where the camber of the street clearly sheds to the undeveloped (north) side," the couple said.
"Despite consistent documented flooding, erosion and property damage during storms and heavy rain, council has refused to plan or budget for kerb and guttering works for the incomplete side of the street.
"And now, council workers appeared in our street, digging up the edges of 7 - 11 Wesley Avenue, and are now in the process of finishing those edges with sprayed bitumen.
"Council has not included 13-17 Wesley Avenue in these works, leaving our properties without an assumed right as long term rate payers in a well established area of Port Macquarie adjacent to Nobby's Beach.
"After today's work, the finish to our street looks appalling, clearly devaluing our properties, aggravating all street owners with the poor quality (short-term fix) bitumen spray over the street and driveways (covering some stormwater outlets) demonstrating disrespect, neglect and a distinct lack of planning for appropriate infrastructure.

"One owner commented that it makes our street look like we are from a third-world country."
Residents argue that the maintenance works carried out on the 70 year old street are "offensive in quality and longevity".
The Mortons said properties have sustained continued flood damage and road deterioration.
The latest works are "an ugly quick fix that affects all residents significantly both in aesthetics, function and value".
"Port Macquarie-Hastings Council once again proving they don't have rate payers best interests at heart."
