Roads, Bridges & Reserves

Kentish Council is responsible for the construction and maintenance of many roads, bridges, paths, parks and reserves in the district.

Kentish has 472km of sealed (55%) and unsealed roads.  Sealed roads are inspected regularly and independently assessed every four years so that regular maintenance and rebuilding programs can be scheduled.  Council has an annual grading and re-surfacing program for more than 200km of unsealed roads in the district. The district also has over 100 bridges which the council maintains.  

Whilst the Council conducts regular inspections of these community assets, the keen observations of the general public are invaluable to alert us of any unforseen problems.  Please report any issues directly to the Council officers on 03 6491 0200.




Council wishes to advise residents and users of Nook Road that road reconstruction works will commence on Monday, 18th March, 2019.  Stage One works will include the removal of existing guard rail and installation of new storm water infrastructure. 

Stage Two works will commence on Monday, 8th April, 2019 and will include the reconstruction of a section of Nook Road between West Nook Road and Gravel Pit Road.  This section of road will be closed for approximately two weeks, including weekends.  The road will re-open for the Easter period.  All traffic to use an alternative route.

In the interest of safety, Council asks road users to adhere to all signage.  Please contact Council on (03) 6491 0200, or by email, if you have any queries in relation to the work.



Council officers have been monitoring a section of Lower Beulah Road approximately 1km from Bridle Track Road where the road verge and shoulder have stated to crack and slip.  As a precautionary measure the road was narrowed to one lane, however a recent review has indicated the movement is unlikely to stabilise on its own accord.  Consequently Council’s geotechnical engineering consultant has recommended a 15t load limit be place on that section of road and is working on a design to rectify the slip.  The works will extend from the creek ben up to the roadway and it is planned to undertake this significant work during the coming 2018/19 autumn period.
