Annual road grading will be doubled across the Shire and general maintenance levels on unsealed roads will be increased.
The threshold for response to corrugations has also been lowered.
Previously, corrugations were responded to if they were 75mm or more. Now, corrugations will be responded to if they are 40mm or more rather than 75mm.
Previously, corrugation patches had to meet or exceed 25% of total road length. Now, additional criteria has also been introduced to address corrugations on shorter patches of road.
Additionally, we've introduced new criteria to address isolated sections of corrugation such as on corners or sections of road that can be fixed with machinery other than graders. That means our graders can stay on program and around to more of our unsealed roads.
