Council maintains a road network of more than 4,000 kilometres, including:

  • 1,147 kms of sealed roads
  • 2,440 kms of gravel roads
  • 551 kms of earth roads.

Council makes a significant investment in repairing and upgrading roads to ensure they are safe for the community to use.

All roads in the municipality are inspected every year. An annual maintenance work schedule is then developed. Repair works include:

  • sealing
  • line marking
  • grading
  • weeding
  • patching
  • slashing
  • shoulder repairs
  • spraying
  • sign replacement
  • tree trimming. 

Grading works generally aren’t done in summer due to dry soil conditions.

To report a damaged road, please lodge a service request by contacting Council on 1300 666 535. 

Bridges

Council maintains 64 bridges, as part of its road network. Bridges are regularly assessed for structural capacity. Some bridges have a load limit applied, due to their poor condition.

Bridges undergo routine maintenance as outlined in the Road Management Plan. 

Gravel road resheeting

Every year, a program for resheeting gravel roads in Campaspe with crushed rock is developed.

Each road is prioritised, according to traffic volume, the type of traffic the road carries and other factors such as the number of homes along the road. You can find out more about how Council prioritises gravel roads for resheeting here.

Every two years, Campaspe’s entire 2,400 kms of gravel roads are inspected and assessed. Those roads requiring resheeting are then prioritised, using the same method as mentioned above.
