Infrastructure Preservation Plan

Council has adopted an Infrastructure Preservation Plan that enables Council to ensure that future road works programmes take into account the need for preservation in an efficient and effective manner.

Council has in excess of 650 kilometres of roads of which approx. 310kms are sealed, 263kms are gravel sheeted and 91kms are formed only. The roads have been categorised into hierarchy order being regional roads, local feeder roads and local only roads.

In order to preserve these road assets the following criteria has been used.

  • Sealed roads are to be resealed at least every 20 years to maintain the sealed surface.
  • Gravel sheeted roads are to be re-sheeted at least every 15 years to maintain the running surface.

This infrastructure preservation plan is specifically for preservation and does not include any reconstruction or new asset projects.
