with less than 50 vehicle movements per day do not qualify for Council funded
seal extension works under the Seal Extension policy.
sealing of unsealed roads in the District is determined in order of priority by
an assessment of each road under the following criteria:
The volume of traffic the
road carries - 40%
The dust exposure to
residents living on the road - 25%
The degree of benefit gained
relative to the cost of sealing the road - 20%
The impact on earnings any
dust may have (such as dust on crops like kiwifruit) - 15%
On Thursday, 14 July 2016, Council's Operations Committee
adopted the revised criteria above. Under the new criteria 23 unsealed roads
have been prioritised for seal extensions over the next four to five years,
from 2016-2021, totalling 30km.
The indicative cost to undertake seal
extension works on low volume roads is around $260,000-$300,000 per km. The
costs are influenced by land purchase requirements, land use and expected vehicle
loadings, the existing alignments and topography, service relocations, consent
conditions, drainage requirements, entranceway numbers and intersections.
