Better roads for region
A COMPLETE road data collection and assessment program will allow the council to keep a closer eye on the condition of the region’s 3000km roads.
Cr Tony Ricciardi said the council had engaged Pavement Management Services to undertake a complete assessment of the region’s roads.
“The company uses vehicles equipped with laser and video cameras and other recording equipment designed to measure the roughness and other distress factors of the road surface,” Cr Ricciardi said.
“This technology will identify every rut and crack along our 2000km sealed road network.”
He said the program would be undertaken on a recurring basis.
DATA COLLECTION: New technology to survey Queensland roads.
