How do you manage and maintain Yarra's roads?

We have developed a plan for managing, maintaining and improving Yarra's local road networks.

Our road management plan sets goals and objectives to create a sustainable, safe and efficient transport system in partnership with the community.

The purpose of the road management plan is to document the standards and priorities for inspection, maintenance and repairs of the road network.

The plan outlines our responsibilities to ensure that roads and footpath are safe.

The road management plan includes:

  • management system put in place by us to inspect, maintain and repair the public roads for which it is responsible
  • description of those assets on public roads for which we are responsible
  • standard, or target condition, at which those assets will be maintained by us
  • a hierarchy for roads and footpaths to inform response times and effective maintenance and repair practices
  • updating to the road register

How do I report damage roads or footpaths?

You report damaged roads or footpaths by giving us a call or sending us an email. Find out more on how to report.
