Road Grading Program Underway Following Recent Rainfall

Horsham Rural City Council’s rural road grading program is gearing up following recent rainfall in the municipality.

The operations team will next week undertake maintenance grading and resheeting in several areas, including Polkemmet, Pimpinio, and Laharum.

Works are also being carried out on the outskirts of Horsham, and the program is scheduled to ultimately cover all areas within the municipality.

HRCC acknowledges the backlog of rural road maintenance that has accumulated.

The dry period before Easter limited opportunities to grade rural roads due to their unworkable nature.

However, with the recent rain, conditions have improved, allowing the council to address this backlog effectively.

Residents are encouraged to report any road issues they encounter. The best way to do this is by lodging an online service request or by calling the council directly at 53829777.

The HRCC appreciates the community’s understanding and cooperation during this time and assures residents that every effort is being made to maintain and improve the condition of rural roads throughout the municipality.
