Unsealed Roads

Unsealed roads in the municipality, listed in our Public Roads Register(PDF, 624KB), are maintained by Latrobe City Council under the Road Management Plan. Residents can request for unsealed roads to be sealed under the Special Charge Scheme Policy . The policy involves a majority of property owners agreeing to contribute towards the cost of a project (i.e. sealing of an unsealed road or installation of stormwater drainage or construction of a footpath).

We regularly assess the condition of the footpath, kerb and channel and pavement surface in Latrobe City streets to determine the need for reconstruction or maintenance. Visit the Road Rehabilitiation Page.
