Road Maintenance and Construction Programs

The Shire of Jerramungup has approximately 1200km of roads, with road maintenance and construction programmes utilizing the majority of Council’s budgeted funds.

The works scheduled for 2016/2017 include the Point Henry Walk Trail, drainage improvements throughout the region and also intersection improvements to the Memorial Road intersection.

You can view the upcoming and past plans on our Corporate Documents tab.

Council's roadworks programme takes up a significant portion of the total budget and is prepared well before the budget is formulated, taking into account the funds that can be raised from all areas, including rate revenue, State grants and Federal grants, to reduce 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 is not able to approve additional road construction works during the year without deleting works already included. 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.

Road maintenance is performed as required, with activities such as road grading scheduled to be carried out on a regular basis. All queries and requests relating to roads, drainage and infrastructure should be directed through the Council office where one of the administration staff will record and lodge a customer action request and the matter will be responded to by the relevant employee. Road maintenance requests can also be lodged online.
