Road Network Responsibitlies


Whose responsibility is the road network?
Council has the direct responsibility for the provision of its road network. The prime objective is to provide these services at a standard acceptable to the community in the most efficient and cost effective manner. Not all roads in the region are the responsibility of Council, though. The Department of Main Roads has responsibility of a number of roads which pass through the region. Visit the Department of Main Roads' road and traffic information page for details of these.

Council acknowledges that one of the prime considerations in road maintenance is determining the balance between service provisions by contract as against a day labour workforce. Being a local authority with a large rural road component in its road network, Council must maintain a sufficient day labour workforce to adequately maintain roads on a day to day basis and also deal with disaster situations caused by extreme drought, flooding or cyclone

Gates and Grids Permit

Council's Gates and Grids policy assists the implementation of Subordinate Local Law No.1.16 (Gates and Grids) 2011 for the installation, maintenance and administration of gates and grids spanning Council-controlled roads. This ensures that:

  • Installation and maintenance meets appropriate safety standards;
  • No unreasonable interference or disruption to the use of the road occurs; and
  • Appropriate indemnities are in place to protect Council and the public against loss or damage.

The policy does not apply to gates and grids at property entrances or on property boundaries where the gate or grid is not on a Council-controlled road.

To obtain a permit to install a gate or grid, the applicant must complete an “Application to Carry out Works on a Council Road” form and submit to Council with the application fee.   Once the gate or grid has completed the installation stage, the owner must complete an "Application for gates and grids" and submit to Council with the application fee.
