Road Management Plan & Road Register

Information on Road Management Plan and Road Register

The Road Management Plan (RMP) has been developed to meet the legislative requirements of the Road Management Act 2004 (the Act). Council is the Road Authority for municipal roads in which this RMP applies to the maintenance and operational activities of municipal roads.  

In accordance with Sections 50 and 52 of the Act, the purpose of this RMP is to: 

  • establish a management system for the road management functions of Council which is based on policy and operational objectives and available resources
  • specify the relevant standards or policies in relation to the discharge of duties in the performance of those road management functions 
  • detail the management systems that Council proposes to implement in the discharge of its duty to inspect, maintain and repair public roads for which Council is responsible

The RMP identifies responsibilities, inspection regimes, defect intervention standards, response times and management systems required to manage civil liability as well as demonstrate that the Council, as the road authority, is responsibly managing the road assets under its control. Assets covered under this plan include the road pavement and surface, kerb and channel as well as footpaths on the road reserve.
