Council is responsible for a vast network of community infrastructure including more than 1800 kilometres of local roads and almost 130 bridges, of which more than half are traditional timber structures.
The Council road network stretches from Cunningham's Gap and the Great Dividing Range in the west to Numinbah Gap and the Gold Coast hinterland in the east, south to the New South Wales border and north to the neighbouring council areas of Logan and Ipswich. It comprises more than 950 kilometres of sealed road and more than 850 kilometres of gravel roads.
The maintenance and continued improvement of the region's civil infrastructure is one of Council's core priorities and effective asset management is an integral part of this process.
Council recognises that effective asset management is fundamental to delivering sustainable services to our community. Council's asset management plans and infrastructure strategies (below) balance cost, risk and performance to achieve best value from our assets, both now and into the future.
