Have your say on local road and footpath maintenance
19 May 2017
Kingston Council is seeking community feedback on its new Road Management Plan that aims to keep our local roads and footpaths well-maintained and meeting community needs for years to come.
Mayor David Eden said Council was responsible for 596km of local roads and 1033km of footpaths.
“Every single member of our community – young and old, residents and our business community – all use our roads or footpaths,” Cr Eden said.
“It’s a major task to keep all or local roads and footpaths well-maintained and safe for community use.”
“The Road Management Plan sets out exactly how we do that, and we’re keen to hear the community’s feedback.”
The Road Management Plan maps out inspection timetables, regular maintenance and targets for repairing any problems along the way.
It is reviewed every four years and is currently open for public consultation.
Interested community members can lodge their views on Road Management Plan by Tuesday 6 June via:
