Roads

Council roadworks in Guildford, Victoria.

Council and VicRoads share responsibility for managing roads within Mount Alexander Shire. We manage approximately 1,500km of sealed and unsealed roads as part of our road and bridge network. Find out more and how to report or request road-related repairs.

Sealed roads

In rural areas, VicRoads maintain the arterial roads and the full width of the road reserve from property line to property line. Generally, all other local sealed roads are managed by Council.

Arterial roads
Calder Freeway Old Calder Highway
Midland Highway Pyrenees Highway
Castlemaine-Maldon Road Maldon-Newstead Road
Maldon-Bendigo Road Maldon Bridgewater Road
Daylesford-Newstead Road Creswick-Newstead Road

Heavy vehicle network maps including roads assessed for heavy vehicle access are on the VicRoads website.

Council endeavors to keep our roads open at all times however for public safety reasons roads do need to be closed in certain situations. Council publishes planned works and road closures in public notices and media releases.

Arterial road maintenance issues or hazards to VicRoads.

Unsealed roads

Unsealed roads require ongoing maintenance and are regularly inspected, graded and/or resheeted by our Works Unit. High traffic areas require extra maintenance as they deteriorate at an increased rate.

Not all unsealed roads within our shire are managed by Council, as there are also forest roads under State Government ownership.

Raised dust from unsealed roads can be annoying and inconvenient for affected residents and businesses. Read about how you can reduce dust from unsealed roads.
