"Road resealing is part of this Council's back-to-basics mandate," Mayor Glen Hartwig said.
"I spoke recently at the Chamber of Commerce business breakfast about the necessity to provide residents and visitors to this region with a quality and safe road network.
"The completion of this program means we are, in effect, reducing the cost of maintaining our roads for the community.
"The new road surface protects the pavement and ensures we are providing a long-term, cost effective solution.
"I would like to also acknowledge council staff who worked extremely hard to get this work done. The community appreciates your efforts," Mr Hartwig said.
More than 230 individual sections of road were included in the program.

230 roads around the region have received some council love in the past week.
