Assessing our local roads

Published: 5 September 2022

A shire-wide sealed and unsealed road condition assessment to improve the renewal and maintenance programming, connectivity, mobility and safety of Cardinia Shire’s road networks will begin shortly.

The inspection will assess 840km of sealed roads and 860km of unsealed roads across Cardinia Shire. 

These activities, which will be undertaken by Council’s asset inspection contractor, will photograph and assess the community’s roads to enable more effective road management and maintenance. 

The inspection will begin Monday 19 September and take approximately four weeks to complete. 

Residents may observe camera equipped, transporter-style inspection vehicles travelling on our local roads during this time. 

When following these vehicles on the roads, Council is asking that drivers please leave a space of a full car length to provide the rear cameras with a clear view of the road surface, where possible. 

This project will support multiple of Council’s key road strategies, including our Road Management Plan, Road Safety Strategy and our Pedestrian and Bicycle Strategy, and will help inform future Budget processes. 

Council is committed to innovation and data driven decision making, and we thank residents for their assistance during this period of works.
