Scheduled road maintenance programs

unsealed road grading

Council's unsealed road grading maintenance schedule is available to view in the tables below. We are responsible for managing over 450km of unsealed road in our local government area. The majority of these roads are graded every 12 months, with the more heavily trafficked roads graded every 6 months. 

Four maintenance grading crews operate on a continual basis to manage these unsealed roads. The management mainly consists of grading the roadway to produce a consistent and even road surface free from pot holes and corrugations. Grading is also done with the aim of producing a sloped road surface to prevent water pooling on the road surface and causing pot holes or soft spots.

Why has there been a delay with grading my road? 

On occasion there are circumstances outside of our control which could affect the grading program and result in delays to the planned grading schedule. These include adverse weather conditions and other maintenance works requiring immediate attention. However,  we remain dedicated to undertaking the grading works in a timely manner. 

Successful maintenance grading is dependent on weather. Performing grading works during and after wet weather results in damage to the road pavement so maintenance grading starts again when the road pavement has sufficiently dried out.

How is an unsealed road graded? 

A grader is used to clear gravel from the roadside edge drains and trim the top layer of road gravel to produce an even road surface. Sometimes we'll use a water cart to  then spray the road surface and any loose gravel with water, which helps to achieve the desired compaction. A smooth drum roller is then used to compact the gravel. The grader may then do a final pass to trim any high spots.

Will I receive notification of when grading will occur on my street? 

Generally for normal maintenance grading activities we don't send out letters of notification to residents before starting work. Residents will be notified if road closures are required, however this rarely happens.
