About the survey to evaluate Main Roads shared-path maintenance trial
Over the last sixth months, there has been a shared-path maintenance trial. We now want to find out how effective this has been.
Already, we have received regular feedback about the standard of maintenance. As a result of this feedback an improved set of maintenance standards is being trialled. We now need to find out if these standards will be operationally possible.
Since April 2007, a two-person crew has been dedicated to the maintenance of Main Roads controlled shared paths. View or download the map linked below to see where these paths are located.

The paths are inspected at least once a week more frequently in areas where they are used a lot or require extra maintenance - and the crew do the following jobs:
* maintain and clear obstructive or hazardous vegetation;
* surface maintenance;
* drainage maintenance;
* monitor and maintain structures (fencing and retaining walls) within the Main Roads controlled path;
* maintain signs, line marking, bollards and grab rails; and
* monitoring and maintenance in respect to debris, litter, graffiti, lighting and vandalism.
Note: the maintenance crew are not responsible for improvements or the construction of new paths and facilities - for example, installing new lighting, signs or line marking.
