During the next three months (until the end of April 2024), large-scale maintenance works and pavement reseals will be undertaken as part of Gunnedah Shire Council’s 2023/2024 Roads Program.
These works will improve road surfaces and protect the road asset for future years to come.
Maintenance works will take place in 28 blocks between intersections on 20 Gunnedah roads throughout the urban area. These roads were selected based on current condition and priority need for the protection of road surfaces.
Traffic control management will be in place at all worksites. Residents are asked to follow directions provided by Council staff and engaged contractors. Letterbox drops will take place prior to maintenance works in each street.
It is imperative that residents remove all vehicles, trailers etc. from the road pavement to allow necessary works to proceed. Any obstacle will impede progress and lengthen the time taken to undertake the works. It will also increase costs.
Every endeavour will be made to ensure the impact on residents is limited, however the road works will cause some inconvenience. Council asks that all residents remain patient and support the necessary works.
Reseal works are not carried out after April as the temperature generally falls below the desirable minimum and can cause defects to occur to the newly surfaced road pavement.
As well, new sealed surfaces can take a while to harden especially in hot conditions. Residents are asked to treat the new sealed surfaces with care and remain patient.
