The City of Gosnells manages over 810 kilometres of roads across our 11 suburbs.

We run a yearly repair and resurfacing program to keep our roads safe. On average the City resurfaces 15 kilometres of road per year.

As all of our roads are different in age, materials and use, our roads need different levels of care to be kept in the safest condition. Resurfacing roads is like taking your car for a service - it keeps it in good condition and prevents big issues in the future.

We know road works can be inconvenient at times. We appreciate your support and patience while we work to look after our roads to make it easier for everyone to get around the City.

What does road upgrades mean?

The City conducts different types of road upgrades:

  • Resealing - when the road is still in good condition, but the surface layer is damaged.
  • Resurfacing - this involves the replacement of the surface layer and the asphalt. May need extra work like drainage upgrades
  • Rehabilitation - this work often means repairs and replacement of drainage systems and other services that are under the road.

Reticulation information


What to expect during works?

Each road upgrade is different, and residents may experience different impacts depending on what work is being completed.

You will have access to your property for the majority of the time. Notifications about full road closures will be advertised here, and on signs at the work site (if in place).

We have provided an overview of the work that happens during each stage of the upgrade, and what impacts you may experience as the work takes place.
