The Victorian Government's Road Management Act provides for each road authority throughout the state to prepare a Road Management Plan.
The plan must identify responsibilities, maintenance standards and inspection regimes required to manage civil liability and must demonstrate that the City of Melbourne as the road authority is responsibly managing all of the road assets within its control.
From time to time, the City of Melbourne reviews its Road Management Plan to ensure it is clear, accurate and up to date and amends it accordingly. Copies of the current and proposed Road Management Plan (which has been reviewed and edited and is in the process of being adopted by Council) are provided below:
Current and previous versions of the Road Management Plan
The City of Melbourne's Road Management Plan was first adopted in August 2004 and was amended in February 2010 to:
- broaden the range of assets managed under the provisions of the road management plan
- to clarify the identification of categories of roads subject to inspection and
- to revise intervention and response times, 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 the road authority’s road management plan applies are
- efficient and
- appropriate for use by the community served by the road authority.
