Mount Alexander Shire Council has outlined its intent for the future management of footpaths, trails and bridges in the shire with the recent adoption of two asset management plans.

Council adopted the two plans last month which consolidate assessment and planning requirements for these assets into the foreseeable future.

The Asset Management Plan for Bridges considers 241 bridges and major culverts in Council’s asset register, and the Asset Management Plan for Pathways examines footpaths, shared paths and trails.

“Both plans provide a summary of our assets’ condition, functionality and management costs whilst also considering future demands and resource constraints,” said Jess Howard, Director Infrastructure and Development, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Through these plans, we have a good understanding of the condition of our assets, the risks associated with their condition as they age, and their ongoing maintenance and replacement requirements. ”

“Council aims to provide well-managed assets for our community, now and into the future, and these plans will help us do that,” said Ms Howard.

The review and adoption of the Asset Management Plans for Bridges and Pathways are an action identified in Council’s Annual Plan 2019/2020. The Plans are intended to be reviewed and updated periodically.

Both documents comprise a suite of asset management plans routinely reviewed in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020.
