Road Works & Closures

 UNSEALED ROAD MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

Gunnedah Shire Council has released a detailed program covering the next six weeks of unsealed road maintenance activities. This program will be updated on a weekly basis. It is a guide only, as Council continually assesses roads and prioritises activities for completion.

As a result of the recent flood events, we are in a reactive phase of scheduling to address the most severe defects in the unsealed road network first. Reactive works will take at least three months from 7 November 2022 based on the December 2021 flood experience. Activities will focus on gravel patching and grading works to address washouts where water has crossed roads.

The cyclic maintenance grading program will re-commence once Council has attended to the extensive list of reactive works required following the recent flood events.

We ask for your patience as we address flood damage to the roads. Please drive to the conditions and do not enter closed roads.
