Weather conditions

All works may be delayed due to weather conditions or external factors. When storm events or heavy rain occurs, the works schedule may be altered. Updates will be posted onlnine. 
The dust suppression treatment can also be affected by these weather events.

Due to a large Storm in November 2018 some delays to the current grading program will be noticed.


Frequently asked questions (FAQ's)

I noticed there are spoils left on the side of the road after grading, what happens with this?

Through the grading process, spoils such as larger rocks, branches, bark and similar material are cut and pushed to the roadside in piles. These spoils will be removed at a later date as they cannot be included into the road surface.

Does the road need a settling time after grading?

Some residents have inquired about the surface of an unsealed road just after it has been graded. Due to the need to add water to aid compaction, the surface will need several days to dry & bind the materials. Caution is required by residents and visitors travelling on these roads as much as would be expected on any wet surface.

Can I apply for our unsealed road to be sealed?
