Roads, Footpaths, Stormwater & infrastructure
The City is responsible for maintaining roads and footpaths and traffic management.
The road and footpath network includes:
- more than 280 kilometres of sealed roads
- over 5 kilometres of unsealed roads
- more than 425 kilometres of footpaths
- 67 bridges.
The City's inspection program identifies hazards, such as uneven footpath surfaces, damaged signs, potholes and trees overhanging the footpath.
The City also owns and manages more than 339 kilometres of stormwater mains, more than 550 other stormwater assets such as kerb and gutters, and 60 kilometres of rivulets and creeks.
An in-house design and project management unit supports the Transforming Hobart 10 year capital works program.
