Roads

Council manages an extensive roads network.

The vast majority of our roads, 758.3 kilometres, are unsealed and there are 377.38 kilometres of sealed roads which includes 67.6 km Regional Roads (state road) and 4.77 km parking lane adjacent to highway.

There are 52 timber bridges and 79 concrete and other bridges throughout the Local Government Area.

 
BEZZANTS ROAD BRIDGE
 
Due to the temporary closure of the bridge on Ten Mile Road (west of the Bezzants Road intersection) traffic is currently being diverted via Bezzants Road which has an imposed vehicle height limit of 4.4 metres. Council has received approval from John Holland Rail to remove the existing railway bridge spans to allow unrestricted access for livestock trucks on Bezzants Road and works are scheduled to commence on Tuesday 12 June 2018.
 
Please be assured that Council is currently investigating options for the full replacement of the bridge on Ten Mile Road.

 

Updates and any changes to these works will be posted on Council’s Facebook page and website. Council will endeavour to complete these works with minimal impact on residents and please be assured that Council will accommodate any emergency situations where access is required. We regret any inconvenience that these works may cause and thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

If you require any further information please contact Council’s Department of Infrastructure Services on telephone 02 6730 2371.
