Around 3,564km of roads are situated within Southern Grampians Shire and it is a huge challenge each year to maintain, repair and restore them. We place a high priority on road maintenance and each year we allocate millions of dollars to the roads budget.
The roads within the Shire are divided into two main categories - arterial roads (603km), which are managed by VicRoads and municipal roads (2818km), which are managed by Council.
Council has a contract with VicRoads to perform road maintenance tasks on some of the arterial road network (Main Roads).
There are processes in place to help guide decisions about maintenance, construction and management of the arterial road network and the municipal road network.
