About $630,000 will be spent resealing about 12 kilometers of roads across Warrnambool as part of the city council's annual upgrade blitz.
The council has earmarked 53 locations across the city to be repaired as part of the pre-Christmas works which began over the weekend.
The council's chief executive officer Peter Schneider said that resealing was an important part of the council's roads maintenance program.
"While most roads are expected to last for well over 20 years before they need to be rebuilt, appropriate and timely maintenance is important," he said. "Road resealing is one of the best ways to extend the lifespan of our city's streets."
The council is once again partnering with the Corangamite Shire in appointing Boral as the contractor to complete resealing in both municipalities. "We're very happy to be working with Corangamite again to include both of our resealing contracts under a joint tender," Mr Schneider said.
"Road resealing involves specialised equipment and personnel, and by combining both of our resealing contracts, we have been able to achieve a better price than if we were to advertise separately.
"This arrangement has been in place for a number of years now, and it's a great example of an innovative and collaborative approach to achieve better outcomes for ratepayers."
Some of the roads earmarked include sections of Liebig Street, Japan Street, Viaduct Road, Pickering Point and Drummond Street in Dennington.
