Road works

Overview

We have increased the number of work crews out fixing roads after Council voted to increase its road maintenance budget by up to $600,000.

The decision was made to increase the budget as constant rain and storms have resulted in deterioration of the road network.

Council will be able to claim some road repairs under the State Government’s Disaster Recovery Fund and an additional recently-announced fund – the Council Flood Support Fund, but these funds don’t cover repairs to all the issues on the large road network.

Council is providing regular updates on the road blitz via our social media accounts and print advertising. 

Flood Recovery Update

Unsealed roads and sealed roads of the entire network have been 100% inspected. Follow up inspections have been completed. 

Approximately 460 defects were detected due to flood damage in late 2022.

Rectification works include:

  • Formation grading
  • Removal of debris and silt from infrastructure
  • Loss of material and requiring replacement
  • Potholes – sealed pavement damage
  • Unsealed shoulder surface failure
  • Unsealed road surface damage

Council engaged civil contractors to rectify these defects across the Shire.

See next sections for information on completed and upcoming works.
