Draft Road Management Plan

We're seeking community feedback on Kingston's draft Road Management Plan that aims to keep our local roads and footpaths well-maintained and meeting community needs for years to come.

Every single member of our community – young and old, residents and our business community – all use our roads or footpaths with Council responsible for 596km of local roads and 1033km of footpaths.

It’s a major task to keep all or local roads and footpaths well-maintained and safe for community use. The Road Management Plan sets out exactly how we do that, and we’re keen to hear the community’s feedback.

The draft Road Management Plan maps out inspection timetables, regular maintenance and targets for repairing any problems along the way. It is reviewed every four years and is currently open for public consultation.

You can lodge your views on the draft Road Management Plan by Thursday 8 June via:

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I must declare a conflict of interest here as I am Vice President of a US company that supplied a concrete protection treatment technology on the public decks of the Mentone Life Saving Club in 2009 that delivered a solution to combat water leakage and corrosion of the concrete slab. If all concrete footpaths and kerbs were sprayed with this product known as Spray Lock Concrete Protection (SCP) then the concrete would be cured faster, resist water ingress and ensure no cracking or spalling would happen for a lifetime. See www,permanentconcreteprotection.com for more details. Footpaths treated with SCP are cleaner and less likely to cause slips as the surface stays clean for many years when washed with rain water.

As a regular bike rider & local resident of Mordialloc, I am strongly opposed to Kingston Council’s proposal to narrow Beach Road for extension of Bay Trail Mentone-Mordialloc.
Common sense dictates that ‘safety’ of cyclists & other users MUST take precedence over vegetation!
Sensible compromise - complete Bay Trail back of kerb, no narrowing of Beach Road lanes, no loss of lanes, minimise loss of parking.
Removal of ‘unofficial’ gravel walking paths, replaced with vegetation would off-set vegetation loss.
Walkers have the option of walking on concrete paths on foreshore Mentone-Mordialloc along beach.
It is NOT necessary for 3 paths Mentone-Mordialloc – Bay Trail, unofficial walking paths, concrete foreshore path.
Mordialloc already has serious parking shortage for visitors. Any parking loss will exacerbate the problem.
Community supported previous Council proposal, & expect current Council to honour that decision.
I request Kingston Council reverse decision back to original proposal. Get rid of gravel paths. Do not narrow Beach Road. Minimise number of lost parking.
I have written to VicRoads to request that they insist that Kingston Council revert to original proposal as per community wishes. VicRoads Ref: ETS501106479

Narrowing the road and loss of parking spaces will reduce safety and ease of travel especially when there are many cyclists using the roadway at weekends.
There is nothing of value in the roadside vegetation near the road to deserve protection.

Many footways and roads are shared with cyclists and it makes sense to include a dedicated bicycle budget for maintenance of bike lanes and shared trails, with inspection and works done to a schedule.
