Current roads program

Works continuing through 2019/20

In the current financial year $55million will be invested in renewal and rehabilitation works on our roads and bridges, and another $15million on maintenance works. That’s $777 for every MidCoast resident, compared to as little as $30 per resident in some Sydney suburbs.

The table below indicates projects, locations and timings in this year’s Capital Works program. Those highlighted in orange are funded through the $100 million Road Upgrade Package. Over and above these projects, you’ll also see our crews out across the region every day, undertaking maintenance works such as pothole patching, roadside slashing and gravel resheeting.

Note – This table is a condensed version of a more detailed capital works program that is updated and presented monthly at our council meetings. You can view the latest version by downloading it from the attachments on our Council Meetings web page. You can also view what we have completed over the past 12 months here.
