Grids Policy

There are over 300 grids throughout the Shire.

The relevant legislation concerning grids is set out in Division 2 of the Roads Act 1993 ("the Act").

The Act imposes upon council, as the relevant roads authority for the Shire, the obligation for the management of roads within the Shire; this includes the functions of design, construction, maintenance and management.

It is critical for the safety of all road users and for efficient operation of a grid that a grid be designed, constructed, erected and maintained to specifications approved by Council.

Council, as the relevant roads authority, bears the primary responsibility for management of its road network and for the safety of road users.
