Council adopts a Capital Works Budget each year to ensure our assets are well maintained. As part of Council's 2022/23 Capital Works Budget $21.9mil is invested on upgrades and renewals of our extensive road and transport network to benefit our community.
In addition to specific projects, Council also includes larger regional projects such as the Regional Bitumen Reseal Program and Regional Gravel Resheet Program to ensure we renew our transport infrastructure assets to keep them in good condition.
Regional Bitumen Reseal Program
This ongoing program involves renewing the bitumen seals across the existing road network. Various sites are selected for reseal according to the condition rating and bitumen seal age. In the 2022/23 budget, $4.7 million has been allocated to the program.
Regional Gravel Resheet Program
The gravel resheet renewal program focuses on renewing the pavement across the existing unsealed gravel road network. Council has allocated $5 million in the 2022/23 budget for the program.
