Unsealed road trial

We have begun a trial to improve the way we reconstruct and stabilise sections of unsealed roads in the shire. The two selected sections of roads in the trial are:
Potts Road, Taradale from the train line to the Phillips Road intersection. Works are currently underway and are expected to be completed by Sunday 4 August.
