It is always lovely when it rains in our Shire but did you know it is often when unnecessary damage to roads occurs?
While the upkeep and maintenance of roads is Council’s responsibility, you can assist by staying off unsealed roads for at least 48 hours after rain. The damage that occurs by driving on wet roads lasts for many months until Council contractors or staff can work on the road.
By staying home, we can keep the roads in good condition, potentially not cause damage to your vehicle, and potentially not have the embarrassment of getting badly bogged.
Council formally closes the roads after reasonable rainfall and as such if you drive on the road you are breaking the law!
