Roads, Bridges & Reserves

EMERGENCY ROAD CLOSURES

For the latest road closure information due to emergency events, please visit the Tasmania Police Website   www.police.tas.gov.au/community-alerts


 

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.

LOWER BEULAH ROAD - 15T LOAD LIMIT - UPDATED 15/03/2019

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.

Road Closures

LOAD LIMIT - EFFECTIVE 28/7/2017
