Council maintains a network of 829 kilometres of sealed and 3318 kilometres of unsealed roads within the region. In addition to this, we maintain Queensland Government roads, consisting of another 671 kilometres of sealed and 56 kilometres of unsealed roads, under a contract with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
The major operations in maintaining these roads include bitumen patching, pavement repair, gravel re-sheeting, grading and slashing. Council is also responsible for roadside facilities including street lighting, signs and line marking, footpaths, kerbing and storm water drains.
Construction work is undertaken on a priority basis, with the Council adopting a forward program of works. Construction projects are prioritised based on criteria such as traffic volume, network linkages, safety, asset condition, school bus routes, freight routes for primary production, tourist routes, amenity, public image and expectations. The program can be affected by outside influences such as disasters/emergencies, individual road failures, significant external contributions, increased industry or development activity in a particular area.
