Unsealed road photo

1. Road maintenance

We are responsible for around 1,600 kilometres of road throughout the local government area. 752km is unsealed and the remaining 915km is sealed in various formats. We hold an ongoing contract with the NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) for the provision of road maintenance and construction services on the State road network within our local government area and part of the Goulburn Mulwaree local government area.

2. Grading Schedule for Unsealed Roads

Council undertakes grading of unsealed roads in accordance with the Unsealed Road Maintenance - Grading Policy.(PDF, 190KB) The grading schedule takes into account factors impacting on the performance of the road network including traffic, terrain, budget and gravel quality and quantity.

The schedule indicates the roads to be graded. However, there are times (e.g. during prolonged wet or dry weather) where the condition of unsealed roads may deteriorate and motorists will need to drive to the prevailing conditions. This schedule is only a guide and may be affected by weather and availability of resources.

        We are also responsible for the maintenance of footpaths. Each year we undertake repairs, maintenance and construct new footpaths in line with our Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan.

        7. CityCare

        To address a shortfall in asset maintenance, the former Queanbeyan City Council gained approval for a one-off 5.8% Special Rate Variation in 2010-11. This Special Rate Variation, known as the CityCARE Levy, funds upgrades and maintenance to Queanbeyan’s roads, footpaths, parks and sportsfields.

        In regards to roads, Council allocates approximately $650,000-$700,000 towards pavement rehabilitation and bitumen resealing of the Queanbeyan road network. An additional $250,000 (approximately) is allocated to footpath maintenance and replacement. This funding is on top of the regular maintenance works that Council undertakes in the Queanbeyan area.
