Verges

 

The Parks and Verges team focus on reserve and verge mowing and maintenance, open space & roadside slashing.

The Urban Verge mowing program is divided up throughout the City and Township areas to ensure that each section is manageable and completed within given timeframes and serviced the same amount of times.   

Street sweepers follow the verge mowing program with the intention of having all grass collected from the road surface by the end of each shift (approximately 9pm).   Under extenuating circumstances (e.g. machinery breakdown / staff resources) the grass is removed within 24 hours which complies with the current EPA requirements.

Footpath blower operators also follow the verge mowing program to blow any grass from the footpath to the roadway for ease of removal by the street sweeper.
