Rough Roads Register
Council maintains a Rough Road Register, and we encourage residents and visitors to advise Council of any roads that you feel need attention contact the District Council of Ceduna.
Allocation of funding for roads
All roads within the district are inspected yearly by members of the Assets and and Infrastructure Committee and Council staff to establish a hierarchy of roads according to usage and condition. This information is used by the Assets and Infrastructure Committee to determine which roads for Council to consider during budget priorities for the coming financial year.
Council has an Assets Management Officer who is working on collecting data and assessing the condition of all Council roads. This data will enable Council to better plan road construction and maintenance activities to meet the determined service levels. Modelling of this data will also enable a comparison of various activities during the life of a road pavement so that the most economic construction and maintenance practices can be adopted.
