SEE Something? WANT Something? SAY Something..
We rely on and encourage residents of the shire to report faults, as we don’t have the resources to ensure that every road, building, park and garden in the shire is free from defects. If you see something, please report it keeping in mind the following:
1. Reports are to be made via the shire website, www.dumbleyung.wa.gov.au, or if you don’t have access to a computer, or prefer not to, you can make a report via the front counter of the shire, either in-person, by telephone, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Reports are not to be made to the Manager of Works and Services, staff not working the front counter or any staff member in their private time. We are trying to ensure every works request receives the appropriate response, but if you choose to go outside the process, we may not provide a response.
3. Works requests simply need to report what and where the fault is. If you have further helpful information please include it, but we do not require a story behind the fault. From the report, we can determine the correct treatment and if we require further information, we will get back in touch.
Following your report, we will respond to acknowledge receipt of the report as soon as it is received, and then let you know what action we plan to take within ten days. If applicable, we will then let you know when the work has been carried out.
ROAD WORKS ON the cnr of bennett st & bahr rd DUMBLEYUNG (Stubbs Park)
TRAFFIC DIVERSION BYPASS FROM 1st – 18th April 2019 (See Map)
Road works will be carried out on the corner of Bennett St and Bahr Road in Dumbleyung from the 1st to the 18th April 2019. A bypass road and temporary footpath delineated by orange netting will be installed to ensure pedestrians and traffic can continue to flow through the area. Traffic will be controlled with the assistance of traffic lights.
These works are critical in this year’s maintenance and construction program and need to be finalised prior to the changing season. These traffic control measures have been implemented as we realise the timing of these works coincide with the Taste of Dumbleyung. We have notified the CMCA Rally who will be staying at Stubbs Park of the arrangement and appreciate your patience during this time.
We realise this may be an inconvenience however for us to complete the task efficiently and safely we ask that you please assist us with the below:
- Do not walk through closed work areas as works require the bitumen to be at high temperatures.
- Be mindful of heavy machinery operating in the area.
- Please adhere to traffic light signals when driving through the area
If you have any questions, please contact the Shire of Dumbleyung on 9863 4012.
