Unsealed roads in the municipality, listed in our Public Roads Register(PDF, 534KB), are maintained by Latrobe City Council under the Road Management Plan. Residents can request for unsealed roads to be sealed under the Sealing of Rural Unsealed Roads Policy. The Contributory Scheme Policy involves a majority of property owners adjacent to the road agreeing to contribute towards the cost of the initial construction and sealing of the road.
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.
