Road Maintenance and Construction Programs

Report It - Online Form

Road MaintenanceThe Shire of Jerramungup has approximately 1,200km of roads, with road maintenance and construction programmes utilising the majority of Council’s budgeted funds.

The Council's roadworks programme is prepared well before the budget is formulated, taking into account the funds that can be sourced from State grants and Federal grants, which reduces the impact on ratepayers. Due to the amount of work that goes into the roadworks budget preparation and the costs involved in roadworks construction Council may not be able to approve additional work throughout the year. If you have identified roads requiring greater attention than general maintenance can provide, you should contact a Councillor with your request for inclusion in future budget deliberations.

General road maintenance is performed as required, with activities such as road grading put on a scheduled roster for the year. All queries and requests relating to roads, drainage and infrastructure should be directed through the Shire office where one of our Customer service officers will record and lodge a customer request. The matter will be investigated and prioritised according to the urgency and nature of works. Road maintenance requests can also be lodged online.
