The Boorowa Local Government Area is a prominent agricultural region and spans an area of 2579km2, supporting a population of approximately 2500 people. The community is made up of the main township of Boorowa surrounded by the villages of Rye Park, Rugby, Reids Flat and Frogmore.

With a relatively small population base compared to land area, the Boorowa Council has a large transport infrastructure network per capita. This poses a significant challenge in securing adequate funds to provide the services the community needs from its transport infrastructure and in particular its unsealed road network.

Council owns a broad range of unsealed road assets that vary in age, condition and useful lives. These sealed road assets are constructed from a variety of pavements (gravels) which have been dependent on availability of materials and industry best practice at the time of construction. 
Each of the different types of assets behaves differently and accordingly, this provides challenges in the management of the unsealed road network.

Council owns numerous bridge and culvert assets with the age, condition and useful lives of these assets varying significantly and which are distributed throughout both the local and regional transport infrastructure network.
These assets are constructed from a variety of materials including concrete, timber, steel and composites. Each of the different types of assets behaves differently and accordingly, this provides challenges in the management of the bridge infrastructure network.
