Footpath Maintenance

Council is responsible for maintaining approximately 9 kilometres of footpaths (not including parks) and numerous boardwalks and off-road recreational walking tracks.

Most paths are concrete however, some may be other finishes such as pavers, asphalt, timber or compacted rock such as crusher dust.

All paths are shared facilities for pedestrians and cyclists unless signed otherwise.

Council allocates an annual budget for repairing existing paths and for construction of new paths. Repairs are programmed following annual footpath inspection results however, if other issues are reported they are treated as a priority.

Footpath maintenance activities include:

  • Concrete patches and repairs
  • Paver re-laying and repairs
  • Pressure cleaning and chewing gum removal
  • Sweeping

To report any footpath concerns, please contact us.
