Road Management Plan

The Road Management Plan outlines our responsibilities in managing and maintain roads across the municipality. It also describes the management system established by Council to carry out its duty under the Road Management Act 2004 (Vic) to inspect, maintain and repair public roads for which it is responsible.

The Plan aims to:

  • Reflect our commitment to providing a safe and efficient road network for use by all members of the public by identifying assets for which the Council is responsible.
  • Document our commitment to a level of service having regard to affordability, sustainability, community priorities, policies and strategies.
  • Provide a basis to ensure the Council has taken reasonable care in providing a safe and efficient road network for the community.

The Plan also describes the management system established by the Council to carry out its duty under the Road Management Act 2004 to inspect, maintain and repair public roads for which it is responsible. And by road, we mean the full road reserve area, from building line to building line, which includes the kerb and channel, the roadway, the footpath, traffic islands, street trees and signs but not the nature strip area or vehicle crossings.

Each year the council reviews the Plan to ensure that it is compliant with current legislation and consistent with the changing needs of the community. The community is invited to put forward proposals to modify the Plan. These proposals are reviewed by the Road Management Plan Task Force and updated accordingly. On average, Council budgets approximately $7 million per annum to the maintenance and renewal of its road network.
