Next Steps

During May and June Council sought input from the community on the current Roads Hierarchy Policy to better understand community needs, concerns and preferences.

Council is now analysing the feedback received and would like to thank the community for their valued input which will influence future roads guideline standards.

Project Overview

Gladstone Regional Council is reviewing its road network standards and wants to know your regional road experiences and views on how our roads can be improved.

Council reviews its policies every three years to ensure their content is relevant to the region; the information is current and communicated clearly. Our road standards have always met the minimum requirements, but the Gladstone community now has 75.2 per cent of residents who travel to work by car, either as a driver or passenger. That is a higher percentage than the Queensland or Australian figures, which shows how heavily reliant people are on our road network. We would like to know what your experiences have been with our roads and how you think they may be improved.

Council is seeking the community’s view on the current Road Hierarchy Policy to understand community needs, concerns and preferences before making a recommendation about the standards. Participate in the survey on the right, about the footpaths and parking.
