A northern Victorian council has extended the consultation period for its draft Road Management Plan, to provide appropriate notice in the Government Gazette. A Campaspe Shire spokesperson says feedback on the RMP will now be received until 5pm, on Friday, September 10. As a rural council, Campaspe has an extensive road system to maintain. It is made up up of approximately 1,100 kms of sealed roads, 2,050 kms of gravel roads, 500 kms of earth roads, 249 kms of footpaths, plus 69 bridges and major culverts, and 356 kms of kerb and channel. The council has previously been praised for its roads management. "The RMP details standards for the maintenance and upgrade of roads, footpaths, drains and other road-related assets," the spokesperson said. The aim was to ensure the community received a well-maintained road system, while addressing social, safety, environmental and transport network concerns. The RMP helps council to maintain these assets strategically and resourcefully by detailing the inspection regime, defect intervention levels and defect repair response times. "Just as importantly is how this can be achieved within current resources," the spokesperson said. To view a copy of the draft RMP, visit council's website www.campaspe.vic.gov.au/nowopen or a customer service centre. A quick online form is available to capture community comments.
