Once a date and time has been locked in with Council’s contractors, we will endeavour to give the community as much notice as possible through the media, social media and Antenno service app. This will be subject to weather and contractor availability. 

What to expect

Council tries to schedule road maintenance during times and days that cause as little impact to the community as possible. Single lane traffic will remain in place. However, short delays can be expected during this scheduled road maintenance.  In addition, there might be some temporary road closures and detours in place to ensure the safety of workers and the community.

We thank the community for their patience and understanding, as we work to update our roads to make travelling around our municipality safer and more accessible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Council’s customers service team.
