Main Road

A Main Road is a road, declared as a main road under an act of parliament, and controlled by the State Government Department responsible for roads.

Whilst main roads are the responsibility of the relevant State Government department, Councils are typically responsible for assets within the road reserve, not directly associated with the main carriageway.

The exact break up of responsibilities will vary from state to state & depending on the exact road classification.
