WALGA, in partnership with Main Roads WA (MRWA) and the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia WA (IPWEA), has developed a draft interface agreement.  

The agreement outlines principles and practical guidelines that determine responsibility of different elements of the WA road network between MRWA and Local Governments.

The document is intended to:

  • Support responsible road authorities in the performance of their road management functions with respect to the provision of a safe and efficient road network for use by road users and the community;
  • Recognise that Main Roads and Local Governments are partners in managing Western Australia’s public road network; and
  • Assist those on the ground identify where Local Government responsibility begins and ends.
