Bet­ter roads for re­gion

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
