Our routine maintenance crews will continue to monitor the network and complete priority resurfacing and patching works throughout the year to help keep communities connected, freight moving and get goods to market.

DTP undertakes a roadside mowing program that meets obligations to prepare for the fire season and to address safety issues. Roadside mowing is underway across the Barwon South West region until mid-December. Up to five crews are working across the region, starting in the Cressy and Hamilton areas.
