Improving local roads is one of the key priorities of the 2020/21 Council budget, and over the coming year Wyndham City will invest $11.75 million to resurface and reconstruct various local roads throughout the municipality.
These works make our suburban street smoother, safer and more enjoyable for everyday use.
The local roads program does not include Wyndham City’s larger-scale road projects, which are funded as stand-alone projects in the Council budget. Wyndham City is responsible for upgrading and maintaining neighbourhood roads, while the State Government is responsible for delivering major roads, including highways.
Wyndham City takes a multi-pronged approach to determine which roads are in need of an upgrade, and the type of upgrade required. For example, road resurfacing improves the quality of the top layer of the road, while a road reconstruction is a complete rebuild of a road.
We regularly monitor our roads right across the municipality and consider feedback from the community to help guide this annual program.
