Our capital works program includes renewal and redevelopment of new infrastructure.

A core part of our capital works program is committed to maintaining our parks and reserves, drains, footpaths, local roads and community buildings.

Footpath works and pathways in our city


Darwin's pathway network is approximately 518km long, including shared paths, footpaths within the verge and paths within parks. Learn more about our pathways including new projects and maintenance schedules.


Capital work on roads includes minor and major safety and traffic improvements, new street lighting, road resurfacing, major rehabilitation works and from time to time new roads.


Our goal is to provide and maintain a stormwater system that meets the needs of the whole community.

Our green spaces include parks and playgrounds throughout the municipality. We're keeping these spaces fresh with a number of planned improvements.

Playground Shade Program

We’re bringing shade to our fantastic open spaces with our Playground Shade Program.

Street Tree Pruning Program

Keeping your street looking beautiful is part of what we do and part of this is making sure that trees on verges are well maintained.
