Flood Recovery Information 2016

What is happening in the flood recovery?
The full picture of the damage to the Pyrenees Shire from the flooding and storm event is finally starting to become clearer. Expert contractors have carried out more than 5,350 inspections of roads, bridges, culverts, drains and trees across the 3,500 square kilometres of our Shire. These inspections mean someone has closely examined road surfaces, bridges, trees, culverts and causeways to determine if they’ve been flood affected. This has taken nearly five months to do! These inspections have led to the logging of more than 5000 defects or problems that will need to be fixed. Council’s contractors have already fixed 995 issues and are working on another 888 and we anticipate that works will be continuing for at least another 12 months (weather dependent).
Contractors have been working throughout the Shire, including six civil contracting teams, two tree maintenance contractors, and two engineering contractors. Council has spent more than $1million on these repair works to date.
Please speak to a Council representative if you have concerns about your road. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 5349 1100.
This website and our Facebook page will be kept up to date as road and infrastructure damage is assessed.
