Service update: District Assets
9 April 2020
Council is currently carrying out only minimal and essential roading activities. This means that certain things such as debris removal and drainage activities are a lower priority and may take longer than usual. Council still encourages the public to make service requests, but there may be a delay in taking action unless they are causing a hazard.
Westroads contractors are carrying out regular checks of the roading network and carrying out work that is considered high priority. This includes slip clearing and response and recovery in the event of weather-related road disruption on roads that provide access routes for residents and businesses, and road safety to ensure the safe passage of freight and travellers.
