Road resurfacing and road maintenance

The City has an annual program of works to resurface roads, being the Road Preservation and Rehabilitation (RPR) Program.

With over 1,000km of roads within the City and one-third of the budget being supported by external grant funding, a prioritisation process is required for the scheduling of works. This includes

  • Technical assessments (including external audits and annual inspections)
  • Alignment with other planned projects
  • External grant funding criteria

This process informs the priority works for the City’s RPR Program, which is contained within the 5 Year Capital Works Program.  Road resurfacing projects include the replacement of kerbing, upgrade of drainage and pathway connections and any associated peripheral verge works that are required.

To view projects listed in the current financial year, please refer to the online Capital Works Mapping system.

If resurfacing works are not required in the short term, the City will continue to monitor the road surface to ensure the surface remains in a safe and useable condition prior to any future renewal works.

Any maintenance issues on City roads can be reported to the City’s Operations Services on 1300 369 972, via email at or through the online form reporting damage in the City.

The following roads are managed by Main Roads WA. Please report faults or maintenance for these sites through their online form or via 138 138.
