Local Traffic Committee

Date commenced: 
1 October 2008

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is the legislated organisation responsible for the control of traffic on all roads in New South Wales. Traffic is controlled by the installation of prescribed traffic control devices, such as regulatory signs or traffic control facilities.

RMS however delegates certain aspects of the control of traffic on Regional and Local Roads to the Councils of Local Government areas while RMS continues to manage State Roads. Traffic committees are a requirement of the delegation process. There are two types of traffic committees, Local and Regional. Further details on each are available from the RMS website:
