Roads Management Strategy

Dungog Shire Council owns and maintains in excess of 700 km of public roads throughout the shire. These roads are sealed and unsealed roads and are constructed to various widths and standards. There are also hundreds of kilometres of unformed public roads throughout the shire.

Clearly it is not possible for Council to maintain all of this road network and as such this strategy has been developed to ensure that Council has a clear direction in matters such as maintenance lengths, responsibilities of property owners in regards to maintenance and construction standards to be adopted when new roads are constructed or existing roads are rehabilitated.

This document was adopted by Council on 15 August 2011.
