Road Legislation

The Road Management Act aims to improve road management legislation to provide a more efficient and safer road network for all Victorians. This legislation arose as a result of the High Court decision that changed the common law governing civil liability for road management to make road authorities more accountable for the safety of their road networks.

The objectives of the Act are to:

  • Set out the general rights of road users and their obligations in relation to responsible use
  • Establish a system for the management of safe and efficient public roads that best meet the needs and priorities of State and local communities
  • Set clear principles for the division of responsibilities between State and local road authorities
  • Provide mechanisms for coordinating the placement and maintenance of infrastructure on road reserves
  • Establish standards for the construction, inspection, maintenance and repair of local roads.
  • Set out the powers and duties of road authorities
  • Clarify the law relating to civil liability for the management of public roads and other public highways

Public Road Register and Road Management Plan

Under the Road Management Act, Council must keep a register of public roads for which it is the coordinating authority, see the Public Road Register below. This list is updated four times a year.
