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.

Daniel Court, Mount Barker
The 2018/19 footpath renewal program includes the repair of the existing concrete path along Daniel Court in Nairne. These works will also include the repair of dislodged sections of the footpath and the installation of the missing sections of footpath.
Council’s contractor is anticipated to undertake these works during December 2018 -January 2019. The typical hours of operation for construction, unless notified otherwise, are between 7am and 5pm, Monday - Saturday. The contractor will implement reasonable measures to maintain access to all properties outside of the typical construction hours (i.e. extended concrete curing times may require delayed access where temporary steel plates aren’t applicable).
Access to properties will be restricted when works are being undertaken across affected driveways. The contractor will be in contact with you to notify a more exact timing of the works.
Sections of the footpath may be closed at times to facilitate the works and for the safety of workers and road users. All endeavours will be taken to keep the disruption to residents and properties to a minimum.
Should you require further information or have any special circumstances that Council should be aware of during this period, please contact Council’s Project Manager, Mr Scott Thompson, on telephone 8393 6424 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
