Gravel Maintenance

We group all gravel roads into three classifications – Class A, B and C – to determine how often we grade them. The class of road is determined by how many people drive on the road. If it is a major road with high traffic volumes and school bus routes for instance, then it would be a Class A road. If it is an access road servicing just a few homes, it would be a Class C road.

Class A roads receive a maintenance grade once every year, Class B every two years and Class C every three years. Here’s an example of some gravel roads and where they fit into Council’s classification hierarchy:

Class A Roads: Terania Creek Road, Terania Creek; Boggumbil Road, Rock Valley; Sheehan Road, Tuckurimba

Class B Roads: Casey Lane, Coraki; Bungabbee Road, Bungabbee; Monaltrie Lane, Monaltrie

Class C Roads: Browning Road, Numulgi; Charlton Road, Rosebank; Lavis Road, McLeans Ridges

2016/17 Sealed Roads Rehabilitation Program

Basic rehabilitation of a road involves taking the bitumen off the top, adding some more gravel, mixing it with the existing gravel and then sealing the surface with bitumen. This treatment strengthens the gravel foundation and smooths out the surface.

Most roads in our network were constructed many years ago and not built for today’s traffic volumes or heavy vehicles. Rehabilitation extends the road’s life by 20 to 30 years by increasing the overall depth and strength of the road. Additionally, by recycling the existing road material, it minimises the overall cost of the project.

2016/17 Sealed Roads Resurfacing Program
