What difference will an SRV make?


An SRV will help reduce Council's infrastructure backlog from $20.3m to $7.7m. Without an SRV the backlog will only be reduced to $18.2m.  

An infrastructure audit was undertaken in 2016 to reassess the condition rating of Council’s roads, footpaths, kerbs and gutters. The audit indicated an improvement in the overall condition of assets from 3.02 to 2.90 however demonstrated a clear need for further priority works to be undertaken.

Council’s infrastructure backlog was also evaluated independently, revealing an overall backlog of $20 million. Similar analysis undertaken by the NSW Government in 2016 determined Burwood Council’s infrastructure backlog to be 58 per cent which is significantly higher than metropolitan council.

Without an SRV, Council will be unable to reduce the existing infrastructure backlog effectively to ensure that local roads, footpaths and drains are maintained to a safe and satisfactory level.
