Roads & Bridges
The Township of Perth East strives to provide a safe and efficient means of travel on our road system. The Public Works Department is responsible for nearly 530km of roads, 50 bridge structures and many large diameter culverts. The ongoing maintenance and patrolling of theses assets are paramount duties of the department.
The Townships roads crew operate its routine road maintenance and capital projects out of four yards. The south district operates out of the Rostock, and Line 40 yards, the north district crews operate out of the Milverton and Newton yards.
During the construction season there may be several construction projects on the go. View information on current and planned constructions projects as well as start and completion dates.
All new road access points for laneways, driveways and field entrances require an entrance permit. The application form and fee are submitted to the Public Works Office for approval. View or download an application here.
During the spring thaw, some Township roads may become too soft and unstable to withstand the weight of a fully loaded truck, regardless of the axles. In an effort to reduce damage to the roads during spring thaw, from March 1 to April 30 each year, the Township restricts vehicles to half loads (5 tonnes per axle) on all roads in the Township. Please assist us in reducing repairs to our road system by not having heavy deliveries to your property during this time of year.
