Roads

We are responsible for managing maintenance services across a wide range of assets, including roads, drains, footpaths, buildings, street and park furniture, parks and reserves, after hours emergency response and its vehicle fleet.

The development of the Road Management Plan (Word, 3.25MB) complements our asset management plans for roads, footpaths, bridges and drainage by addressing specific elements of the maintenance and management of the road network, as well as the legislative responsibilities under the Road Management Act 2004.

The Register of public roads (PDF, 1.8MB) lists all roads that Council inspect and maintain in accordance with the standards detailed in the Road Management Plan.

Council's asset inventory is growing daily with new development and as at 30 September 2015 consists of:

  • 632 kilometres of sealed roads
  • 865 kilometres of unsealed roads
  • 21 kilometres of off street car parks and facility roads

  • 803 street litter bins

Resident-funded dust supression works

Cardinia Shire Council is now programming works for resident funded dust suppression activities on its unsealed road network. The schedule is currently being developed, with works to be conducted in December (weather permitting and contractor availability).

Residents wanting to have works undertaken as a part of this program, are invited to submit an application form (including payment) by 2nd December 2016.

As with previous years, road lengths of no less than 100 metres, and in multiples of 100metres, will be treated with dust suppressant at the landowners’ request and expense. The cost to treat 100 metres of road length with dust suppressant is $350 including GST.

Council advises that dust suppressant applications are only short-term treatments, the effectiveness of which typically depends on weather, site conditions and traffic volumes.

Download the Dust suppressant application form (Word doc, 29kb) and send with payment to:
