RA Webinar - Regional Road Transfer and Road Classification Review

16/07/2020 14:00 to 16/07/2020 15:30

Venue: via Zoom
Details:

Join Roads Australia for a briefing and discussion on the Regional Road Transfer and Road Classification Review.

In January 2020, NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro, and Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole, announced the initiation of a Regional Road Transfer and Road Classification Review to ensure the road classification framework is still fit for purpose and that roads across NSW are appropriately classified. 

Future Transport 2056 identifies the NSW Road Classification Review (Classification Review) as a key initiative to make adjustments to the classification policy framework and update the road network to align with the ‘Hub and Spoke’ Transport Network Model and the ‘Movement and Place’ Framework.

Also in February 2019, the Government announced that up to 15,000 kilometres of council owned roads would be returned to State management as part of a broader package of support for local councils to better manage and maintain the rural road network. Combining the transfer of council owned regional roads with the Classification Review will ensure equity and transparency in all changes and support the development of an integrated road transport network.

An Independent Panel, chaired by Ms Wendy Machin, has been established to make recommendations for consideration by the NSW Government. The Independent Panel members are:

Ms Wendy Machin (Chair)
Mr Peter Duncan AM
Ms Jillian Kilby
Mr Peter Tegart
Mr John Roydhouse
Mr Michael Kilgariff

 There will also be a Panel Discussion with members of the Independent Panel, as well as RA President - Michael Bushby and RA Immediate Past President - David Stuart-Watt, both of whom are past NSW Roads and Traffic Authority executives and were involved in the last review in 2012.

We will also be keen to hear the views of our webinar participants, so an interactive Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
