Roads in the region

About

Council is responsible for over 3,000km of sealed and gravel roads across the region.

To protect and prolong the life or our roads, Council works with a number of bodies including Transport for NSW and the Mid North Weight of Loads Group, as well as managing our own regular maintenance programs.

The Local Traffic Committee and Transport Working Group provide technical advice and guidance to Council on a range of initiatives to raise public awareness and improve the safety of the region's roads.

We regularly update LiveTraffic with major road works. We recommend checking there as your first point of call. You can also see the status of these major roadworks here

See below for weekly updates on grading of unsealed roads, road repairs on sealed roads, and major flooding recovery works.

 

Sealed Road Maintenance

Tamworth Regional Council is the road authority for more than 1,200 kilometres of sealed regional and local roads. To keep these roads in good condition, Council has several sealed road maintenance crews that regularly inspect and repair roads where needed. We also re-seal many roads each year.
It is very important that no vehicles are parked on streets on the day that re-sealing works are to take place. Council will notify you a few days in advance of any re-sealing works which may be planned for your street with a flyer delivered to your letterbox, to allow you to make any necessary arrangements.
