Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) participates in a wide range of significant advisory groups and committees to remain informed about reports, reviews, impact statements and inquiries that are relevant to its operations and operating environment.
Traffic and Transport Committees
Liaison occurs at a local level through several Roads and Maritime Services Local Government regional consultative committees established to promote joint aims, resource sharing and collective action.
Proposals for large development projects, such as major road developments, are placed on public display at the concept stage and public meetings are held to enable affected people to voice their opinions. In addition, public opinion is sought during the preparation and evaluation of Environmental Impact Statements.
