Build Roads

Pedestrians are the largest single group of road users and the most vulnerable road user. The provision of pedestrian facilities is important and many requests (apart from maintenance) are received by Council, either for the construction or upgrade including replacement of footpath facilities. Council is also developing an asset management plan and Transport Master Plan that will include the management of the existing footpath network and determination of whole of life costs.

In 2010 Council completed a condition assessment and from that developed a program for maintenance and construction.

Council’s budget includes the annual Footpath Program. 

Council endeavours to complete the Footpath Program within the indicated year, however the program can be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. If this occurs the affected segment will be scheduled in a future works program.
