Grading Program

Grading Program

Council is responsible for the maintenance of approximately 1500km of gravel roads.

Council's Road Management Plan requires that roads are inspected regularly and, if their condition is outside pre-determined defect levels, those roads are prioritised and programmed for maintenance.

The grading program now employs three graders working across 24 zones on a rotation basis.

The map shows the 24 zones.

This schedule may be referred to as a guide to see when graders are expected to be operating in each zone. It should be noted, however, that the program is dependent upon weather and other factors and is subject to change. Also it should be noted that not all roads in each zone will be graded in each rotation. The graders are scheduled to rectify defects previously logged. Roads without defects above the pre-determined levels will not be scheduled for grading.

This schedule is for the grading of gravel roads only. The grading of shoulders on sealed roads is not included as it is carried out as a separate maintenance activity.

Zero to 1 Grading Program

Council's $400,000 ongoing road maintenance program will soon take place, upgrading almost 70 Class 0 roads to Class 1 in the Road Management Plan.

This funding is complemented by additional maintenance and renewal funding for these roads over time.

Over the next year, 66.9 kilometres of road will be reclassified from Class 0 to Class 1.

Of these, approximately 33 kilometres will be upgraded in 2017-18 to be able to be maintained at the Road Management Plan Standard.

A further approximately 33 kilometres will also receive maintenance at the Road Management Plan standard.

These works will be undertaken by an additional grader, with $150,000 allocated to increase the frequency of maintenance grading.
