|Gravel Resheet||12 years|
The steps in gravel resheeting are:
- Tyning (loosening the existing surface);
- Spreading the new gravel; and
In most cases for most purposes Gravel Resheeting is considered to be a renewal and therefore capital in nature.
There are a couple of exceptions to this rule.
- If only a short section of road, say less than 100m is resheeted.
- Some councils apply a light resheet2 (50mm or less) every year and this expenditure is considered to be maintenance.
- The Queensland Grants Commission defines Gravel Resheeting to be a maintenance activity, so it needs to be reported as such in the annual return.

The useful life of gravel resheets will vary considerably due to a range of environmental factors. All the same, it may be of interest to discover the average useful life for gravel resheets adopted by a range of councils.
If your Council would like contribute data, simply add the name of your Council and the average useful life adopted below & recalculate the average figure.
The useful life page displays the title of this page so if you do add information to the table below and it changes the average useful life, please alter the title of this page accordingly.
