We have recently re-sealed some of our local roads.  Line marking will be reinstated once the seal has cured.  Please take care while driving on these roads as loose stones may be present.

Resheeting is being scheduled/has commenced on the following roads: Boyce Road, Back Creek Road, Marinis Road, Belford Road and Osbaldeston Road.

Damage to sealed roads

We are currently undertaking a network-wide assessment of the sealed road network to pick up the pavement failures caused by the very wet summer and winter.  More information will be updated once it becomes available.

There are 229 sealed roads with damage assessment completed and this number may double by the time the entire region has been inspected.  If you don't see your road on the list and it has new pavement damage, since the floods, it is likely being currently inspected.

 

Gravel Roads Scheduled Maintenance

Please have a look through this list of roads that we are expecting to do some work on shortly. As you would understand, we need to wait for the unsealed road conditions to be dry enough for our heavy machinery to work on.

Work on gravel roads is also weather dependent so the program may change to accommodate the ever-changing weather conditions.  There are 205 unsealed roads that are already approved for repair after flood events in 2021.  Assessment has been completed on 103 roads following the 2022 floods and this number is expected to increase as more assessments are undertaken.

Disaster Recovery Program

Council, supported by additional contract resources, has been working on disaster recovery since March 2020. So far $16m has been spent on this program, this is in addition to the normal council works budget. Due to back-to-back events between November 2021 and May 2022, the focus has been on emergency works to restore safe access across the road network, wherever possible. From the end of August, we have moved back to the restoration program, which is aimed at permanent repairs and returning the assets back to their pre-disaster condition. 

Repair of roads damaged in the multiple flood events up to May 2022 are due for completion by June 2024. Council appreciates that this may be a long time to wait for repairs to occur on roads that you use every day.

Like all businesses, Council has limited access to the resources necessary to undertake these works including people, machinery and materials.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this very large program of works and assure you that we are doing everything possible to minimise the long-term impact these disasters have on the level of service Council is able to provide for its residents in the future.
