Works started in July 2020 and are due to be completed by May 2021.

We have around 550 kilometres of roadway throughout the City of Charles Sturt. Our roads capital works program provides a regular program of localised repairs, street sweeping, resealing and reconstruction.

There are around 100 kilometres of main roads including Port Road, Grange Road, Tapleys Hill Road, Henley Beach Road and others where the Department of Transport, Planning & Infrastructure (DPTI) is responsible for maintenance and traffic control including signage and line markings.

Our Asset Management Plan gives us direction on managing roads in the City of Charles Sturt.

We consult residents and businesses when we work on major projects like main street projects and streetscape improvement projects. This gives the community an opportunity raise any concerns or suggestions they may have with the project.

Our contractors will also do a mailbox drop just before the commencement of work to inform residents and businesses in the surrounding area that work will be starting.

For a full list of current consultations, see our Community Engagement Projects.

We have a road sweeping program to ensure that the road network is kept clean and the gutters clear of debris.

The program aims to sweep every residential street a minimum of eight times a year and main roads once a week. During seasons with high leaf fall, roads affected will be swept on a weekly basis.

A street sweep will also be done if there has been contamination (eg oil, hazardous materials, garbage, etc) of a road or after a road accident.

If you would like to report a road that may need sweeping, please contact the Customer Contact Centre on 8408 1111.
