Asset inspection planned for kerb, channel and pathway infrastructure

Published: 21 May 2021

A specialised electronic tool is set to hit the road on Monday (May 24) to capture detailed footage of council’s kerb and channel as well as pathway infrastructure.

Contractor Shepherd Services will be conducting the work on behalf of council using an electronic assessment tool, known as a RACAS.

The RACAS collects high-definition images, GPS coordinates and roughness index rating scores.

The electronic tool will be attached to an easily identifiable survey vehicle and e-bike for ease of recognition by the public.

Residents are being advised that they may see either the survey vehicle or e-bike in their street or area as it travels across the region over the next two months.

The data capture is a straight-forward process with vision being captured specifically focused on footpaths and kerb and channel.

This work is part of an asset condition assessment which is a critical task that allows council to develop future asset renewal and management programs efficiently with detailed data.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact council on 1300 MACKAY (622 529).
