Council reconstructs roads to a high standard and, at the same time, renews associated infrastructure like kerb and channel and drainage. This holistic approach results in an extended life for the entire road and minimises maintenance costs. The cost can fluctuate significantly from year to year depending on the projects being undertaken.
