In Victoria the Road Management Act (2004) was introduced to allocate a level of accountability to road authorities. It attempts to ensure that procedures and practices are put in place to maintain roads and pedestrian paths.
Particularly for Councils and in light of the new Road Management Act, RSA has developed policy and procedure guidelines to help establish a framework from which to put the legal requirements into practical actions.
It is often difficult to match the requirements of the Road Management Act for application on minor streets under the responsibility of local government. RSA can work with Council personnel to develop suitable work practices during construction and maintenance activities that best matches the intent of the Road Management Act.
