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 Road Management Act. As such, it is responsible for carrying out the management functions on local roads i.e. all roads within the municipal area of the City of Greater Dandenong, other than EastLink and main roads such as VicRoads arterials and freeways.

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 sets out the policies, objectives and relevant standards in relation to the discharge of the City of Greater Dandenong’s road management duties. The plan also includes details of the management system that Council intends to implement to inspect; maintain and repair public roads and ancillary areas for which it is the coordinating road authority or the responsible road authority.
