Infrastructure and transport services

Council roads 

Roadworks are funded from Federal and State Government grants and general revenue.  Liverpool Plains Council also undertakes planned bituminous patching and periodic bitumen resealing to rejuvenate existing seals. 

Council also conducts maintenance grading, gravel re-sheeting and patching of unsealed roads, as well as shoulder grading and slashing, signposting, guide-posting, bridge and culvert repairs and new construction works.
