Greater Shepparton residents have been given an insight into council’s road construction and maintenance costs, following the allocation of two key contracts.

Last week councillors voted to approve two tenders for roadworks worth about $4.7million combined.

The contracts were for the supply of bitumen and quarry and manufactured material, respectively.

The quarry and manufactured materials contract is worth about $3.2million a year.

It includes the supply of fine crushed rocks for road resheeting and resealing.

According to a council officer’s report, the material will also be used for road construction and kerb and channelling.

The contract is for three years, with an option of a one year extension.

The bitumen contract is worth about $1.5million a year.

Greater Shepparton City Council uses more than 1millionlitres of bitumen a year.

Both contracts were passed unanimously.
