Roads and Footpaths

The Roads and Footpaths activity involves the maintenance of all local roads, kerbs, channels, bridges, street lighting, signs, parking, and footpaths.  Council does not maintain State Highways.

For Council, this means managing a road network of over 1,014 km of predominantly rural roads; 461kms sealed and 553kms of unsealed roads.  

The Roads and Footpaths activity is the largest single expenditure item accounting for more than half of Council's annual capital expenditure (2018/19 - 53%).
