Derby Road upgrade

The Derby Road, Maryborough enhancement project has been extended with the traffic islands both sides of the railway line upgraded last week.

The upgrade was delivered by our Parks and Gardens team and is part of our entry beautification program of works.

Resealing program

Did you know we have 524 kilometres of sealed (bitumen roads) in our Shire?

Sealed roads typically have a 15-year life span so, every year we allocate funding to keep them maintained. In the 2021/22 Council Budget, $537,000 was budgeted for our annual resealing program.

The works have commenced this week and will be carried out by Boral and will take around two to three weeks to complete.

You can view the list of roads here:

Maintenance Grading

Maintenance grading is continuing across the Shire.

Due to higher-than-average rainfall over the past few months, we’ve had an influx of work requests for maintenance grading.

We have one grader crew currently working through requests in the Talbot area – with the crew prioritising roads in the worst condition before working towards a maintenance cycle based on road conditions.

We are working towards having two additional grading crews operating from June to get through the requests as quickly as possible.


Emergency Information Sessions

We’re partnering with Loddon Shire to host emergency information sessions across both Shires to help you prepare for what to do in the case of: Flood, Bushfire, Storm and Heatwave. Upcoming sessions include:

  • Talbot Town Hall Market - Sunday 15 May, 9am to 1pm
  • Maryborough Community House community morning tea - Wednesday 18 May, 10am to 2pm
