Horsham Rural City Council Says...

Reduction in cost is due to the urban/rural split during 2018-2019. Urban road construction has a higher cost per square metre when compared to rural road reconstruction. 2018-2019 saw an approximate reduction of 4,000m2 of urban roads completed as compared to 2017-2018. This was due to contractor availability during the year.
