Road Damage from Farming Implements

Published: Tuesday, 21 May 2019 at 11:46:42 AM

Council have been made aware of recent damage to Shire roads caused by farm machinery.  Please note that damage sustained to Shire infrastructure including both gravel and bitumen roads will be reported to the Police and compensation will be sought from offenders.

Any member of the community who witnesses damage occurring are encouraged to report the matter to the Shire immediately. 

Council understands that accidents do happen, however when roads are being repeatedly damaged and Shire staff are regularly fixing damaged roads, it becomes a problem.

It would be appreciated if all road users moving farm machinery could please take more care with Shire infrastructure. 

Main Roads have kindly provided a flow chart to assist you in identifying any requirements that are dependent on the vehicle type. Click here for more information.
