New grader to tackle Council’s Grading Program

An impressive new grader can be spotted on Strathbogie Shire’s gravel roads as the machinery joins the fleet to undertake Council’s Grading Program.

The new John Deere grader is responsible for the important task of maintaining almost 1500 km of gravel roads.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said Council's Road Management Plan outlines the road maintenance and inspection requirements.

“If the condition of those roads is outside pre-determined defect levels, they are prioritised and programmed for maintenance,” Cr Binks said.

“The new machine is one of three graders employed by Council to work across roads on rotation.”

Cr Binks said community members could visit to view a list of roads being graded and the expected timeframe the grader will be working on the roads.

“The program schedule is dependent on weather and other factors and can be subject to change.”

Community members can log a request for works and report defects on roads via several methods.
