Road infrastructure

Roadside

Guideposts

Guideposts are used to mark and delineate road widths, alignments and structures. All guideposts have a pair of delineators (reflectors) attached and are designed to break or bend on impact to negate a spearing type projectile into vehicles.

Guardrails

Guardrails are designed to provide protection to drivers/motorists from roadside hazards by cushioning and deflecting the impact of vehicles during crash situations.

Kerb and channel

Kerb and channel is installed along the frontage of properties on sealed roads, to assist with the direction of stormwater.

Road shoulders

The Road Shoulder is where the sealed bitumen road width ends and abuts gravel or dirt edges before the grassed verge starts.

Road shoulders are graded or hand patched to provide a safe driving surface should a vehicle need to drive on the shoulder, when meeting or passing other vehicles, because of narrow road width. Pine Rivers attends to road shoulder maintenance on all roads in the district - local or State controlled.

Bus shelters

Bus shelters and bus seats are provided at all commuter route bus stops as part of public transport infrastructure.

Requests for bus shelters or seats are assessed on individual merit and takes into consideration the number of passengers and services in  the area, the safety of passengers, the impact of the stop and the wider public transport network and the likely effect the shelter may have on the amenity of adjacent properties.

Vandalism causing damage and uncleanliness is a continuing problem at bus shelters. Council arranges repairs, maintenance and cleaning to the structures, timetable cabinets and memorial boards.
