Road Management Plan

What is the Road Management Plan?

The Plan outlines Frankston City Council's road management responsibilities and details the standards of road maintenance service for roads within this municipality.

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.

The Road Management 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 may be viewed and downloaded via the related documents section of this page.  Any further information or clarification relating to the Plan may be obtained by contacting Sustainable Assets at the Civic Centre, Davey Street, Frankston during normal business hours. 

Maintaining Roads and Footpaths

When you see yellow lines on local roads and footpaths, this is part of Council’s regular maintenance programs to assess any issues with kerbs, roads and footpaths.

Council’s work crews can then easily locate the site to decide on appropriate repairs and to make the area safe within three days.

Asset inspections are conducted between every month to two years depending on risk and location, e.g. school areas are checked more frequently than zones with less traffic.

A recent audit showed that 99 per cent of the local pathway network is in good condition and over 95 per cent of roads meet the target condition level.
