Who is responsible for which road?

The management, maintenance and development of our roads is shared between VicRoads/Regional Roads Victoria, City of Ballarat, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and other state and federal government departments.

The VicRoads website contains information about how roads in Victoria are funded and classified and who is responsible for the maintenance and development of each type of road.

The VicRoads Map of Declared Roads shows the major roads that pass through the City of Ballarat area.

More information on responsibilities between VicRoads/Regional Roads Victoria and councils on arterial roads (as the relevant responsible road authorities) can be found in the Code of Practice for Operational Responsibilities for Public Roads. These operational responsibilities include such activities as the construction, inspection, maintenance and repair of road infrastructure.
