As of June 2015, Council's local road network consists of 638 klm of road made up of:
205 km of sealed urban roads
343 km of rural sealed roads
89 km of rural unsealed roads
Included in this network are 34 concrete and steel bridges and 10 timber bridges.
Like many country local government areas Byron Shire Council struggles to maintain the road network in good condition. This is made even more difficult because the rural areas of the Shire are some of the most heavily populated in the country. The high levels of traffic generated by tourists compound the problem.
