The size of our road network posses some challenges. Our team receives customer requests each year to fix pot holes, sweep, clean up oil and other spills, mark lines and fix surface defects.
Maintenance on unsealed roads is completed two to six times a year. Dust suppressant is applied to some of our unsealed roads during December and January to bind the road surface and minimise dust.
As well as responding to customer requests, we have a road management plan which you can view online. This outlines how we manage local roads.
Council understands roads are important so this year has budgeted $10.29 million to build new roads and improvements existing ones. Footpaths will receive $3.61 million.
