City Maintenance (Roadworks, Footpaths & Verges)

Council's City Operations teams provide a programmed, proactive approach to undertake regular maintenance work around the City, based on risk.

The City has been divided into precincts and the teams move through each precinct on an agreed cycle.  All areas are serviced equally and no preference is given to new or older suburbs.

Work will be undertaken on those areas that have been identified as a high risk to the public such as severely raised or broken sections of footpaths, road failures, tree and shrub encroachments and horizontally displaced sections of kerb and water table.
