VicRoads

VicRoads is responsible for maintaining and improving the condition and performance of Victoria's 22,320 km of arterial roads and 5095 bridges and major culverts.

VicRoads also develops road safety programs, registers vehicles and licenses drivers.

VicRoads is the registered business name of the Roads Corporation, a statutory corporation within the Victorian Government Infrastructure portfolio.

Our purpose is to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits to communities throughout Victoria by managing the Victorian road network and its use as an integral part of the overall transport system.

Approximately 2400 staff work at VicRoads in partnership with other government agencies, local government and the private sector to provide cost effective products and services to the community.

The first road
The first 'road' to be built in Victoria by European settlers was on Seal Island, two centuries ago. The project manager was the commander of HM Brig Lady Nelson – John Murray. Murray was surveying the Bass Strait area on behalf of Victoria's first road authority – the Government of New South Wales – in 1801.

Changing names
In 1982 the Road Safety and Traffic Authority was moved from the Ministry of Police and Emergency Services to the Ministry of Transport.

In 1983 the Road Safety and Traffic Authority was combined with the TRB and MRB to become the Road Traffic Authority.

The same year, the CRB changed its name to the Road Construction Authority (RCA), thereby eliminating the confusion its original name had caused for nearly 70 years!

The final logical step came in 1989 when the RTA and RCA were merged to become the Road Corporation – better known to millions of Victorians by its trading name – VicRoads.

Registration, Licensing, Road Safety Rules, Standards & Regulations, Roads and Projects, Public Transport & Environment.
