How many mowers to cut over 18 million square metres of grass?

A lot! And that’s what our trusty maintenance teams have been doing over the past three months.

And it’s not just grass. It’s road grading, street sweeping, pothole fixing and many other maintenance jobs throughout the whole of the Shire.

During one of the wettest winters on record that played havoc with the state of Victoria’s roads, and then a hot summer that contributed to high vegetation growth rates, we’ve heard from our community about the need to maintain our beautiful Peninsula.

We heard and we’ve acted. The Shire is a huge area and the maintenance numbers below illustrate this.

In the 2022 October – December quarter:

We cut 18,420,498m² grass/vegetation

We maintained 41,747m² garden beds

We cleaned 6,317 drainage pits

We cleaned 219km of beaches

We swept 3,338m of streets

We graded 422km of unsealed roads

We filled 5,750 potholes

So if you see one of our teams out and about, give them a wave as they go about their business – the business of keeping the Peninsula looking good.

And if you see something that needs some attention, report it so we can fix it at soon as possible: mornpen.vic.gov.au/reportit
