Road Management Plan review

We're making some changes to the Road Management Plan which is used to set service standards for the maintenance of our local roads and footpaths.

The plan is used to outline:

  • the way we manage our roads and footpaths across the municipality
  • how often assets will be inspected or reviewed
  • what service standards are used to determine when we will carry out work.

These standards are set to help us meet legislative requirements like safety standards, available budget and general maintenance.

The updated plan helps ensure these requirements reflect current legislative requirements. It also provides an opportunity to update service standards based on current resources available for maintenance and upgrades.

We've made some improvements to our service levels across most categories in this plan with updated intervention levels and response timeframes.

We are unable to make any changes to the legislative requirements, but we are seeking input on the new time frames and intervention levels.

  • About the plan

    The updated Road Management Plan covers information on:

    • maintenance responsibilities for Council and landowners when there is private access and crossovers

    • which assets are maintained by Council

    • which assets are not maintained by Council and who the manager of that road or footpath is

    • defect intervention and steps taken

    • repair response times

    • affordability, available resources, and management of risks

    • road classification and intended function

    • duties of road users

    • inspection frequencies.

    The plan describes the way Council will meet our road management obligations including maintenance targets and asset management programs that reflect available resources.

    The plan also outlines the economic, social, safety, and environmental expectations of the community, particularly those people and groups who rely on the street network for access to homes, education, commercial and industrial areas.

    The plan is regularly reviewed in line with the Road Management Act 2004 and includes benchmarking with other surrounding Councils to compare intervention levels and service standards. The data is attached under documents.
