Road Management Plan

The Pyrenees Shire has developed a Road Management Plan to deal with the implications of the Road Management Act 2004. The purpose of the plan is to establish a management system for Council for the responsiblity of its duty to inspect, maintain and repair its public roads based on policy and operational objectives as well as available resources and community needs.

The Shire is custodian of an extensive range of community assets that it provides to facilitate delivery of services to the community.  Specifically for road assets, it has responsibility for 2,048.90 kilometres of roads varying from sealed roads to access tracks and fire-tracks, 291 bridges and major culverts; 45.394 kilometres of kerb and channel and 18.659 kilometres of footpaths

There is a real need for the community to understand & recognise the level of funding that Council requires to manage all of the assets, not just the roads, for which it is responsible at a sustainable level. Currently there is a funding 'gap' between what is necessary to retain the road network at the required levels of service and what is actually being funded.

Council reviewed the Road Management Plan in April 2017 and adopted the plan June 2017.

 

 

We acknowledge the people past and present of the Wadawurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, and Djab Wurrung tribes, whose land forms the Pyrenees Shire. We pay our respect to the customs, traditions and stewardship of the land by the elders and people of these tribes.
