Rebuilding and maintaining sealed roads

Council’s investment in sealed road building and maintenance in 2019–20: $3.96 million

In 2018–19, 10.2 kilometres of roads were rehabilitated.

Why we do road rebuilding (rehabilitation) works  

  • Rehabilitation is a full rebuilding of the road pavement. We do these works when the road pavement has lost its strength and can no longer be repaired.
  • This may be due to the road’s age or heavy usage. It may have potholes, rutting, cracking and other issues.
  • We may rehabilitate sections of a road or the entire road, depending on what’s needed.  

What rehabilitation works involve

The old road material is dug out and either reused on the same project or another suitable project.  A combination of new and recycled material is then used to build a new road pavement, starting with the layers under the surface and finishing off with the black top surface.

These works are part of the 2019–20 annual works program.  Tenders will be considered prior to Christmas with work to start in the new year.

  • Caldermeade Road, Caldermeade –  Railway Road To South Gippsland Highway, and west from no.170 to the driveway at no.110.
  • Tynong-Bayles Road, Bayles – end of seal widening to Ropers Lane.  
  • Seven Mile Road, Koo Wee Rup North – Bunyip River Road intersection to driveway at no.778, and driveway at no.778 to 165 metres south of Whitta Lane.
  • O’Neil Rd roundabouts, Beaconsfield –  At Janet Bowman Boulevard (north end), and at the intersection of Timberside Drive and Connassidy Close
  • Redwood Road, Gembrook –  the 100 metre segment from Gembrook Road to the service road.

In 2018–19, 11.7 kilometres of roads were resurfaced. 

Why we resurface roads

  • Resurfacing works are proactive works to help prevent water damage to the road. When water seeps into the road pavement, it can cause potholes and other issues that are expensive to repair.
  • Resurfacing works help prolong the life of the road. A road generally needs resurfacing about once every 20 years.  
  • Road resurfacing works are generally done in the warmer months of the year, depending on the type of treatment.

What resurfacing works involve 

We put a fresh layer over the top layer of the road, using either:

  • asphalt: a bitumen-based concrete-like mixture of stone and bitumen laid at 30mm thickness or greater.
  • spray seal: a layer of bitumen sprayed on the road and covered with stones.

Treatments are selected depending on the road’s condition, how it is used and how much traffic drives on it.

 

These works are part of the 2019–20 annual works program.

Loose stones

  • If you have loose stones on your road, then it has had a spray seal ­– this is when stones are laid over a layer of bitumen, to provide a hard-wearing, skid-resistant surface.
  • Loose stones will only be there for a short period of time. More stones are used than may actually stick to the surface. These extra stones will stay on the road about 7 days before being swept off. Once we remove them, they are recycled.

A sticky road

The road may get sticky on warm days after being resurfaced, so please be careful not to walk it into your house and/or vehicle if it comes into contact with your shoes.
