Kerb and channel

Kerb and channels are more commonly known as gutters.

Kerb and channels form a barrier between the road pavement and the naturestrip which aims to:

  • direct stormwater into stormwater drains and

  • protect the edge of the road from erosion.

We maintain kerbs and regularly use street sweeping machines to prevent the build-up of leaves and debris in the channels.

We construct new kerbs in streets which have never had them under a Special Charge Scheme whereby abutting property owners contribute towards the cost of the work.
