Road projects and improvements

Maintain the Shire's road and footpath assets to ensure safety and efficiency for users.

Parkes Shire Council strives to ensure our local road infrastructure is maintained and improved to ensure safety and efficiency for our road users. Road maintenance is the largest budget expenditure item within Council and is managed through a strategic roads program that is funded by local, state and federal government agencies. The roads program can be impacted by weather events, traffic and other environmental factors which results in change of priorities to the program to ensure the best outcomes for the overall road network.

Currently after excessive rain events and flooding recently, Council continues to undertake road inspections to assess damage to the road network caused by the prolonged wet weather events. With over 2,000km of roads we are asking for the public's help to report damage to roads, so these can be assessed, prioritised and added to the road maintenance schedule.

There are two ways the community can report damage to roads or other council assets.

Phone: Engineering Department 02 6861 2344
Email: council@parkes.nsw.gov.au

Council encourages you to send as much detail as possible, including the name of the road and photos of the problem.

When reporting a damaged road or Council asset, please provide as much information as to the location of the damage. Please also make sure you provide Council your contact details so that we can advise you of the course of action to be undertaken.
