Road Management

Roads Managed by Council

Register of Public Roads

Frankston City Council must keep a Register of Public Roads and ancillary areas of which it is the coordinating Road Authority. Roads may be added to or removed from the Register and non-inclusion of a road on the Register of Public Roads does not affect the status of the road as a public highway or affect the right of public use of the public highway.

Current Road Projects

Roadworks on McKay’s Road, Langwarrin

Works on a roads upgrade will soon commence along McKay’s Road, Langwarrin.

Local residents have been concerned about the dust and conditions of the road and Council has now made the decision to seal the road. This will improve traffic dust and an ongoing improvement of McKay’s Road.

The works are a trial of a bitumen seal in this area – Council will monitor the performance of the newly sealed road to ensure an ongoing improvement of conditions.

The works are scheduled to start on 22 May for a duration of 2 weeks, dependent on weather.  There will be some delays during this time, and access for local traffic only.

The Road Management Act

The Road Management Act establishes a coordinated management system that promotes safe and efficient road networks at state and local levels. To enable co-ordination of road management, the Act establishes a "coordinating Road Authority", that has co-ordination functions, and a "Responsible Road Authority", which has operational functions.
