A Coordinating Road Authority is the road authority with the responsibility for coordinating works within a particular road reserve.
The Victorian Road Management Act 2004 states that in relation to a road, the Coordinating Road Authority is the road authority which has coordination functions as determined in accordance with section 36 of the Act.
This typically means:
- VicRoads in the case of Freeways and Arterial Roads;
- Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning for roads in National & State Parks;
- The local Municipal Council for most other roads.
