Operational Responsibility for Public Roads

Operational Responsibility for Public Roads is a code of practice created under the Victorian Road Management Act 2004.

The codes purpose is –
(a) to provide practical guidance by clarifying or determining how the operational responsibility for different parts or elements of a road reserve is to be allocated between road authorities; and
(b) to establish principles giving practical guidance for determining the boundary between a ‘roadway’, ‘pathway’ or ‘shoulder’ in any particular case, and for determining which road authority is responsible for road-related infrastructure.

The latest version of the code was published in the Victorian Government Gazette on 30 May 2017.
