JACK Hudson is learning to drive an Isuzu 600 in his important work with the Townsville City Council.
At age 19, Jack is part of a maintenance gang and Big Rigs saw him and two other workers on May 29 filling potholes with bitumen near the Parklands Shopping Centre in Townsville.
"We do a lot of maintenance and it is good being part of the team," he said.
"The main truck driver is a lady and I am learning."
After heavy recent rain there is now heaps of work for Jack and the others who are common sights around the north Queensland city.
His ganger told Big Rigs that Jack was an integral member of a small but hard working team.
