Road Strategy Report

Council have seen an opportunity to develop this Road Strategy Report as a living document and to continue to engage community through the formation of the McKinlay Shire Roads Strategy Committee. It is the intention of Council that this committee remain in place to ensure grass roots discussion and input of local knowledge across the Shire informs the direction of future Council development, maintenance and expenditure on road infrastructure.

Council needs to be able to provide residents with a clear commitment of service level for roads that allow for economic prosperity whilst maintaining solid financial management of Council, State and Federal funds.

Your feedback can help identify road damage in the region.

McKinlay Shire Council is partnering with Townsville engineering firm AECOM to deliver the NDRRA Flood Restoration Works Program.

The current works are being done to repair the Shire’s road and drainage network following severe weather events in 2014. The 2014 event program’s total repair and restoration effort is expected to continue through until June 2016 with a forecast works value over $5M. During this time, Council will also be continuing with its normal capital and road maintenance works.

Inspection of road damage in the region has also progressed. Community members are being encouraged to help identify the damage by providing photographs and information on the location, extent and source of road damage. This may identify both routine road damage, and issues related to disaster events, which can enable a timely response and repair.

In addition to the road damage, Council is also interested in the community’s views on ‘wish list’ items for future infrastructure improvements. What improvements would you like to see? What is on your ‘wish list’?  For example – floodways, culverts, road upgrades, or level changes. Your views will help to shape the future of the Shire.

You can provide information and feedback online by completing this feedback form.

Following the inspections and assessment of road damage, repairs will be prioritised into a schedule of works. 

It’s important to remember that Council’s first priority is to ensure the safety of the community. The priorities for repairing roads will be determined by a number of factors such as safety requirements, extent of damage, funding arrangements and levels of road usage (traffic volumes).

Further information on the NDDRA Flood Restoration Works Program is available in the Frequently Asked Questions.
