The Council aims to reduce the need for roading repairs by performing routine maintenance programmes throughout the city, including resealing the roads. As part of this, the Council produces an annual programme of scheduled roading repair work.
Telling you when we are working
We will send you a letter to let you know when we will be working in your street. The letter will include information on when the contractor will arrive, how long the work should take, what you need to do to help us get the work done with minimal disruption, and contact numbers to communicate with the Council and the contractor.
How maintenance work is planned
The Council uses the following process to make sure all roads and footpaths are checked for necessary repairs:
- Annual survey - a qualified engineer surveys the condition of all roads (except for private roads) and footpath in Wellington.
- Computer analysis - road defects are analysed and a draft maintenance job list is created.
- Verification - a roading engineer checks the information and decides on the best solution for each improvement project.
- Scheduling - consultation with service authorities who regularly do their own utility works to make sure there are no potential conflicts.
Based on the factors above, and on the Council's budget, roads and footpaths are scheduled for maintenance.
