If you observe flooding that requires immediate attention please contact the Shire of Harvey Rangers on 9729 0300.


The Shire of Harvey’s road network comprises over 1,000kms of both sealed and unsealed roadsCouncil allocates funding each year to improve this extensive network.  The projects and priorities identified for improvement can be viewed on the Shire’s Forward Capital Works Plan. 

The Shire maintains its streets through an in-house team.  A street sweeper is deployed daily within town site areas and maintenance crews are always working to improve road surfaces.


The Shire undertakes the construction of new paths and renewal and maintenance of existing paths.


A detailed maintenance program schedules the regular cleaning, replacement and improvement of road drainage within the Shire.

Please note: Swale drainage within the road reserve or a property should not be back filled.  They serve an import drainage role and must remain functional. Swale drainage within the road reserve should be preserved by the property owner as a part of their regular verge maintenance.  This includes mowing and clearing any small debris.
