Council Works

Here you’ll see our commitment to improving the region’s roads and bridges listed in a full schedule of current and upcoming works.

With the $30 million Roadcare Program developed as part of our merger savings, on-going efforts to secure project-specific grant funding, and funds that are quarantined for roads through the special rate variation, the area has never seen so much activity aimed at addressing your highest priority – the condition of our roads and bridges.

Add to this the NSW Government's injection of $50 million over four years into improving our transport network, and our program has expanded even further. The state funding will be matched by Council using SRV funds, creating a $100 million program that focuses on the roads that connect us. 

The $100 million program is incremental to the schedule of works already underway and in the pipeline, which when combined with our roads maintenance budget and grant funding, provides for an investment of around $70 million in the current financial year alone.

Find out about our $30M Roadcare Program and what it's being used for

With our community highlighting roads as their number one priority, we established a $30 million Roadcare Program using a combination of merger funding and savings identified through efficiencies delivered through the merger. The Roadcare Program has already started making visible improvements across the MidCoast region.

An announcement made in June 2018 by the NSW Government to inject $50million over four years into improving our transport network will see our program expand even further. This will be matched by Council using SRV funds, creating a $100M roads program – which is in addition to the schedule of works already underway and in the pipeline. Please check back here to find out how the $100M will be invested and which priority roads and bridges will be targeted between now and 2022.

Where does the $30 million come from?

The $30 million that we have allocated to improving the regions roads and bridges over the next 4 years came from a $4 million per year saving to the merger of the three former Council regions (total $16m). Added to this is a $14 million State Government merger allocation.

How is this money being spent?

The Roadcare program is all about:

  • Road reconstruction projects
  • Road resurfacing projects
  • Bridge repairs

So what has actually been done?

Since the formation of MidCoast Council in May 2016, the first year of the Roadcare Program has seen over $4 million spent on the following projects:

$692k spent on additional road resurfacing in Taree (Henry Flett St, Wingham Rd, Flett St, River St, Kanangra Drv, William Wynter Drv ), Tinonee (Manchester St, Cotton St) and Wingham (Richardson St, Wyoming St, Flett St).

$308k on additional road resurfacing in Gloucester (Carter Cres, Cemetery Rd, Clement St, Hawdon St, Hume St, Tyrell St, Ravenshaw St, Reichert St).

$2.2 million funding to supplement Council-funded road reconstruction projects in the following areas:

  • Diamond Beach Road, Diamond Beach - $500k
  • Harrington Road, Harrington - $400k
  • Combined / Dennes Streets, Wingham - $800k
  • The Bucketts Way (Stage 5), Tinonee - $200k
  • Commerce Street, Taree - $300k

$860k on Timber bridge repairs and reconstruction across the Manning and Great Lakes regions.

See the $30 Million Roadcare Program in action

We are working on a series of videos so you can see exactly where, how and why we are spending $30 million on roads over the next 4 years.

2017 Was a big year...

The video below summarises what was achieved in 2017 and contains some useful stats.


"Call that a new road?" - Road Resealing Explained - Part 1

This video explains why there is a delay between applying the first and second seals of a road surface. Often we receive criticism for this delay, and sometimes people assume the road surface has been finished when only the primer seal has been applied. Our civil engineer went to Combined / Dennes Street in Wingham to demonstrate stage 1 of 2 stage road resealing process.


Super Smooth - Road Resealing Explained - Part 2

MidCoast Council Works Engineer, Claire Shultz explains the second phase of our road resealing project in Wingham, NSW. In this phase a super smooth Asphalted Concrete overlay is applied.


Marine Drive, Tea Gardens Resurfacing work

More than just a road resurfacing project, this video captures the final stage of Marine Drive works after Council’s six year multi-million dollar commitment to the Tea Gardens community. The Marine Drive project has improved the amenity of the Tea Gardens Waterfront whilst employing traffic control measures, increasing parking efficiency, improving access along with upgrades to drainage, road pavement and road surface. The project was developed to provide a family friendly, safe and enjoyable area with a strong focus on achieving a balance between the needs of pedestrians, traffic and businesses.
