VicRoads Regional Forum

By July 1, 2010July 12th, 2010No Comments

VicRoads is a designed statutory authority, which as part of its response manages maintenance and construction. While VicRoads is ultimately responsible to the State Government, it does need to work closely with local government, as many of its decisions can have repercussions for Councils.

This afternoon I attended a regional forum hosted by VicRoads for the Mayors and CEOs of Council’s within the eastern region, to discuss road and transport issues across the eastern municipalities.

The discussion addressed the strategic direction of VicRoads and the increasingly integrated approach that is being utilised for all modes of transport. It is encouraging to see both VicRoads and the Department of Transport recognising the need for integration across roads, public transport, walking and cycling.
