Multiple Unsealed Gravel Roads - Grading Works (May 2024)

Council wishes to advise of upcoming works on the listed roads below. The works involve grading over 120km of unsealed gravel roads which have been significantly damaged as a result of declared natural disaster events AGRN1101 (December 2023) and AGRN1119 (April 2024).

What are the works?

Roads with the most severe damage have been given the highest priority to ensure that critical routes are restored first. Council is deploying six separate works crews and efforts have been made to cluster the works geographically to optimise efficiency and resource allocation.

The works will begin to commence this week, though will not all begin simultaneously due to contractor availability. These works will take approximately three months to complete, weather permitting.

We understand the importance of these roads to our daily commutes, emergency services, and local economy, and we are committed to restoring them to their optimal condition quickly. Motorists will be notified of road changes via roadside signage. We apologise in advance for any disruptions you may experience while we carry out this essential work.

We are in the process of assessing various additional roads to be included in the scope of these recovery works. Our goal is to ensure comprehensive restoration and long-term resilience of our unsealed gravel road network. The funding for this engagement is granted by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) guidelines to reconstruct eligible assets to pre-disaster function.


Works Criteria

The works have been carefully distributed and prioritised based on the following criteria:

  • Scale of Damage: Roads with the most severe damage have been given the highest priority to ensure that critical routes are restored first.
  • Contractor Availability: We have coordinated with available contractors to expedite the commencement of these essential repairs.
  • Group Locality: Efforts have been made to cluster the works geographically to optimise efficiency and resource allocation.
