Road & Pathway Condition Assessment
Maroondah City Council has a local road network of 480km, a carpark network covering over 230,000m2 and a pathway and right of way network of 740km.
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure our assets meet the needs of our community, we are assessing the condition of our roads, carparks, right of ways and footpaths, reserve and shared paths.
What are we doing?
- Obtaining detailed video imaging and assessing the condition of Council’s assets.
- Assessing roads, car parks and some right of ways using a specially designed van driven by an experienced operator. The vehicle will be travelling at normal traffic speeds with hazard lighting and warning devices to alert other motorists.
- Assessing pathways and some right of ways using a specially designed quad bike operated by a certified inspector. The bikes will travel at walking pace with hazard lighting and other warning devices to alert other path users.
The information gained from these assessments will help us to better manage our community assets.
While undertaking the assessments, all cameras will be focused on Council’s assets (roads, kerbs and footpaths), however, some limited areas next to the asset might be captured. No focused recordings of commercial or residential, private properties or structures will be undertaken and the images will only show what someone driving along a road would see.
