What we’re doing…
We are undertaking an assessment of the council’s 468km network of footpaths.
Inspection work will begin Wednesday 8th March and take approximately two weeks to complete.
How this affects you…
All cameras are focused on the footpath surface structure with some limited viewing of areas directly adjacent. No image recordings of commercial, residential, private property or structures will be undertaken.
The information gained from this exercise will enable better management of this important community asset, enabling more effective maintenance and renewal strategies to improve connectivity, mobility & safety.
How’s this happening…
These activities are undertaken by the council’s asset inspection contractor, Infrastructure Management Group, as an asset management initiative to obtain detailed video imaging and condition assessment of the community’s footpath assets.
You may observe quad bike style assessment vehicles traveling on public footways around your work, residences, or other locations within the council during this period.
These assessment vehicles are operated by certified pavement inspectors traveling at a brisk walking pace. Hazard lighting & other warning devices will be in operation while completing the assessment and video recording activities of footpaths, cycle ways, and shared access ways.
Vehicles are clearly identifiable, and operators will be vigilant and yield wherever possible to the needs of the pedestrian public.
We thank you for your cooperation during this period of shared amenity access and we look forward to providing the benefits of this exercise.
