Roadworks in your street
Did you know that we have more than 670 kilometres of roads in Hobsons Bay? All varying in age, materials and usage, our many roads require difference extents of maintenance to be kept in their safest and most practical condition. However, as with any other asset, through time and usage our roads can deteriorate in a number of ways, including loss of shape and break down of asphalt.
Council has processes in place to determine which of our roads are of greatest priority for road resurfacing or rehabilitation. For the last 10 years, Council has undertaken audits to assess the condition of ours roads every four years. This involves an independent assessment of the roads within Hobsons Bay to prioritise road upgrade works.
Another thing that can transform over many years is the behaviour of drivers in our roads due to population changes, infrastructure and more. Traffic treatments are introduced and adjusted over time to suit the needs of the community to encourage a healthy driver, pedestrian, cyclist and resident relationship.
If any of these works are occurring in your street, we understand that you may have concerns about possible disruption. View our frequently asked questions for information regarding the impact of road works within your street, including access, waste collections, hours of work and more.
Depending on the works involved, roadworks are implemented under three separate Capital Works Programs.
