A Road Management Plan ensures our local roads, kerbs, footpaths and bridges are safe and in good condition. Under the Road Management Act 2004, Bayside’s Road Management Plan must be reviewed every four years, in conjunction with the election of a new Council. The process requires a review of current service standards and may include a period of public consultation, before being presented to Council for adoption.

Council adopts a Council Plan and Strategic Resource Plan for its four-year term, and a more detailed 10-year Financial Plan and Annual Budget each financial year. The Road Asset Management Plan informs the 10-year Financial Plan and forecasted Budget required to manage the road network based upon asset quantity.

The Road Management Plan is interrelated with each of these documents. It provides information on Council’s Asset Management Policy Framework and the linkages to key corporate strategies, plans and system.
