Road Management Plan
ROAD MANAGEMENT ACT 2004 - ROAD MANAGEMENT PLAN
The purpose of the Road Management Plan is to establish procedures and systems for the management of public roads. Council is a road authority under the Act. As such, it is responsible for carrying out the management functions on local roads i.e. all roads within the council area, other than main roads such as VicRoads arterials.
Under the Act, a road authority shall carry out its road management functions based on policy and operational objectives. The Act requires Council to set appropriate standards for the discharge of its road management duties based on available resources. It also requires Council to monitor its performance in delivering the functions. The plan also includes details of the management system that Council implements to inspect; maintain and repair public roads for which it is the coordinating road authority or the responsible road authority.
The plan also specifies priorities adopted by Council after due consideration of available resources. It also includes any matters that a relevant Code of Practice specifies should be included in a road management plan.
REVIEW OF ROAD MANAGEMENT PLAN
In accordance with section 54(5) of the Road Management Act 2004, the Mansfield Shire Council is undertaking a review of its Road Management Plan.
The purpose of the review, consistent with the role, functions and responsibilities of the Council as a road authority under the Act, is to ensure that the standards in relation to, and the priorities to be given to, the inspection, maintenance and repair of the roads and the classes of road to which Council’s Road Management Plan applies are safe, efficient and appropriate for use by the community served by the Council.
The review will apply to all of the roads and classes of road to which the Road Management Plan applies. A copy of Council's Municipal Road Management Plan and Road Register can be downloaded via the links provided.
Any enquires about the proposed review can be directed to Mr. David Westphalen, Council’s Engineering and Works Manager, on telephone (03) 5775 8555 or email: email@example.com.
