Mansfield Shire Council manages and maintains over 580 kms of unsealed and 240 kms of sealed roads and infrastructure within the Shire, in accordance with the Road Management Plan. This Plan provides standards for maintenance, repair and inspection of these roads.
Road infrastructure includes bridges, road pavements both sealed and unsealed, signage and footpaths in both the urban and rural areas. Council is developing programs to maintain and renew these assets into the future.
Maintenance activities are performed out of our Larkins Road Depot and under contract to local service providers.
Road Management Plan
The purpose of the Road Management Plan is to establish procedures and systems for the management of public roads. Council is a road authority under the Road Management Act 2004. It is responsible for the management functions on local roads i.e. all roads within the council area, other than main roads such as VicRoads arterials.
The Road Management Act requires Council to formally set and act on road management standards based on policy, available resources and community outcomes based on consultation. Council's Road Management Plan details the objectives, standards, systems and resources that Council must implement to inspect; maintain and repair public roads for which it is the responsible road authority. It also requires Council to monitor its performance in delivering the said functions.
This Register provides information about the roads that Council is responsible for under the Road Management Act 2001.
