The work of maintaining the roads in and around our city is constant. Council is responsible for maintaining many road assets. Road works can involve anything from minor work to fix a pot hole which takes only a few minutes to a major project to rebuild a section of road that has completely worn out.
Weekly updates of roading works taking place around the city can be found in the weekly bulletin.

Every year Council does a range of small safety projects around the city. The Minor Safety Works Programme includes improving intersection visibility, installing roundabouts and speed cushions in residential streets to help address speed issues and putting in new pedestrian crossings and refuges.
