The integrity of the road network is maintained by a regular reseal and maintenance program; roads that are beyond rehabilitation are reconstructed.
Every year, we conduct road reseal treatments throughout the city. If your street has been identified for these works, you will be notified by letter of the upcoming work and timing. You can view the fact sheets relating to the type of pavement treatment your street will be undergoing:
