We conduct a wide range of maintenance activities on minor roads and footpaths across Boroondara each year. VicRoads is responsible for maintaining Boroondara's 34 arterial roads.

Major repairs to roads

We budget and plan for more significant works, such as major repairs to laneways and road resurfacing, rebuilding and construction. We undertake and supervise this work on an annual contract basis.

Arterial roads

There are 34 arterial roads across the City of Boroondara. VicRoads is responsible for the general operation and maintenance of these roads. However, Council is responsible for service roads and footpaths on arterial roads because they are considered to be for the use of local residents.

VicRoads has more information on which authority is responsible for what kind of road and a map of arterial roads in Boroondara and across Victoria.
