Investing in Our Roads
We know that roads are the top priority for a majority of our Wollondilly residents and we know that our roads network has not been in great shape. We are now investing more money than ever to address the backlog and bring our roads up to scratch, with a record $17.9 million invested in road upgrades and renewal in the 2020/21 budget. Your rates are helping us deliver road upgrades and maintenance right across the Shire.
Section 138 of the Roads Act (NSW) requires that all work or activities undertaken within road reserves must have the Road Authorities consent prior to the work being undertaken.
The Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) requires that all classes of restricted access vehicles (RAV) may only be used on a public road if the operator has granted access through a notice or permit (mass or dimension authority) from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR).
Wollondilly Shire Council is committed to road safety and keeping the community safe.
Wollondilly Council is seeking road name suggestions from residents, community groups and schools for the many new roads which are appearing around the Shire.
