Draft Road Management Plan 2021-2025

Share this:

Golden Plains Shire Council manages, in accordance with its Road Management Plan, the roads for which it has responsibility under the Road Management Act 2004. The Draft Road Management Plan 2021-2025 was on public exhibition until 7 June 2021. Thank you to everyone who provided a submission.



The Road Management Plan 2021-2025 is a key technical document that establishes clear standards in terms of how road condition is to be managed. The purpose of a Municipal Road Management Plan is to establish a system for Council’s road management functions, which is based on policy, operational objectives and available resources and to set a performance standard. The Draft Plan identifies responsibilities, maintenance standards and inspection regimes for all road assets within Council’s control.

Council’s Municipal Road Management Plan was previously reviewed and adopted in December 2017. Each review aims to ensure that the document is clear, accurate and up-to-date. As required by the Road Management (General) Regulations 2016, the Plan is required to be reviewed by 30 June 2021 following the appointment of the new Council.

At the Council Meeting on Tuesday 25 May, Council received and endorsed the Draft Road Management Plan 2021-2025 for public exhibition. In accordance with Section 10 of the Road Management (General) Regulations 2016, the Plan is available for community feedback with submissions considered before final adoption of the Plan.

Council has reviewed its adopted Road Management Plan 2017-2021 in accordance with the provisions of Road Management Act. A comprehensive internal review of the Plan was undertaken including input from external consultants and proposes amendments to the hazard identification and intervention response for road asset infrastructure. Data from Council’s CRMS system, inspections, maintenance and repair programs informed the proposed changes in inspection regimes and intervention levels. The plan was also simplified to Plain English and formatted to comply with modern asset management practices.
