Reporting defects on VicRoads assets
Do you wish to report a road defect but are not sure who to report it to? In line with the Road Management Act 2004, Council does not have any authority to maintain or respond to traffic hazards on Arterial Roads within the Shire. Under clause 37 of the act these roads are under the responsibility of VicRoads.
How do you identify an arterial road? VicRoads routes have green signage with a Yellow A, B or C route number.
Highways and roads linking main towns are classed as arterial roads.
There are two ways to report hazards or defects on a VicRoads route:
Within the Shire, there are several VicRoads arterial roads, these include:
Maryborough within town boundaries
Within town boundaries where kerb exists, VicRoads is responsible for maintenance from ‘back of kerb to back of kerb’ and where no kerb is present, ‘drain to drain’.
Outside of town boundaries (80km signs), VicRoads is responsible for maintenance from ‘fence to fence’.
If unsure see VicRoads’ website and access the interactive map of declared roads at https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/traffic-and-road-use/road-network-and-performance/maps-of-declared-roads
