UPCOMING WORKS IN NOVEMBER

  • Gravel re-sheet on Rasmussen Rd

The Shire has a gravel road network of 1,200kms that requires constant monitoring to maintain the network. To do this in a practical manner the shire is split in to 3 zones being West , Central and East. Each zone is allocated a maintenance grader that generally grades the roads following a set rotation and circuit. The main local roads will have a summer and winter grading each year and some of the lesser used minor road will be graded once or on as needs basic.

To reduce the risk to the road users we inspect on a regular basis but we can’t be everywhere all the time, which is why we appreciate the assistance from the public to report to the shire (phone, in person or website) any road hazard they may come across in their travels. For plant efficiencies we try to stay with the circuit for our graders, so we may not be able to fix the problem straight away however, for school bus routes we will attend as soon as possible.
