As part of its municipal responsibilities, Townsville City Council manages guardrails within the Council precinct. As part of an Asset Management Strategy, Council undertakes periodic condition assessments to determine remaining useful life and determine maintenance works required.
Council sites have been identified as no longer complying with the current Australian Standards. Consequently, a renewals program has been initiated and sites are identified for renewals or upgrades.
Guardrails have been identified across three locations of the renewals program for urgent attention. Sites are located at Glenlyon Drive - Wulguru, Herbert St - Townsville City, and Wickham St - Townsville City.
