Footpath Condition Inspection

Footpath Condition Inspection 

 

What we're doing... 

Glenorchy City Council is is undertaking an assessment of the city’s 490 km network of footpaths and shared access ways.

Inspections will begin on Tuesday, 24 September 2019 and will take about four weeks to complete.

 

How is this happening?

  • The assessment will be done by Infrastructure Management Group, which is a contractor engaged by Council. It will provide us with detailed video imaging and condition assessments of the city's footpaths and access ways that we can then use to identify where we need to make improvements or do maintenance work.
  • You may see quad-bike style assessment vehicles (like the one in the photos) travelling on public footways around your work, home or other locations within the municipality.
  • The assessment vehicles are being driven by certified pavement inspectors and will travel at a brisk walking pace. Hazard lights and other warning devices will be in operation while the vehicles are operating.
  • The vehicle are clearly indentifiable and operators will be vigilant and will give way to pedestrian traffic.

 

Glenorchy City Council thanks you for your cooperation during this period of shared amenity access, which will provide future benefits to our community.
