MEDIA RELEASE – SHIRE ROAD NETWORK

(Most Roads Now Open)

Most Shire roads are now open to traffic. The exceptions are those few roads that are still too badly damaged and/or have water crossing over them. Sections of roads that cannot be used are clearly marked with “Road Closed” signage.

The 4.5 tonne weight limit has been lifted on roads throughout the Shire and truck/trailer configurations may now use roads as normal. Whilst much work has been and is still being done to ensure that roads are safe and trafficable, table drains are still carrying water from rainfall runoff and seepage from adjoining properties which has resulted in road shoulders becoming very soft. Drivers of heavy vehicles are requested to use extreme caution when passing other vehicles, as the road shoulders may not sustain the weight of vehicles as they do in normal conditions.

At this stage, road damage throughout the Shire has been estimated at $263,000 and the Shires Works Crew has been working extended hours to bring roads back into a safe trafficable condition

Appreciation is extended to all those road users who have exercised patience and observed the limitations and changed conditions over the past few weeks. Acknowledgement is also made of those property owners who have allowed the Shire to access gravel in order to effect repairs. This has been sincerely appreciated.
