Road assets are vital to the mobility of the community allowing for the safe, efficient and sustainable movement of vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic within and across Bayside.
In 2015/16 Council spent $9.8 million maintaining and replacing the road and footpath network, this represents about 17% of Council's total budget.
Our road and footpath network has a total replacement value of $418.6 million, using financial forecasting tools (Maloney Model) and population forecasting and usage trends Council has found that by spending $3.1 million a year on maintenance (cleaning & sweeping) and a further $3.2 million gradually renewing these assets we can increase the lifespan of these assets for another 35 - 40 years.
At the June 2016 Council Meeting, Council adopted the updated Roads Service Driven Asset Management Plan. The Plan is available here
