Our Road Management Plan helps us manage our road infrastructure assets including:
- road pavements
- sealed surfaces
- kerb and channel
- pathways (footpaths, bicycle paths and shared footways)
- major culverts
The plan – which was adopted in December 2006, after a period of public consultation - describes a hierarchy of importance for Council roads, based on traffic volume and function:
- Link roads - generally have the highest traffic volume and link other roads to arterial roads.
- Collector roads - channel traffic to link roads from local access streets.
- Access roads - provide the direct access required for residential, commercial, industrial and farming properties where traffic volumes are relatively lower than link and collector roads, and direct property access is the main function of the road.
Register of Public Roads
The Register of Public Roads lists municipal public roads and ancillary areas to public roads, for which we are the road authority.
The register also contains information that helps clarify the scope of the Road Management Plan.
