The improvement and maintenance of regional and local roads is the statutory responsibility of the relevant local authority in accordance with the provisions of Section 13 of the Roads Act 1993. Works on those roads are funded from the Councils' own resources supplemented by State road grants.  The selection and prioritisation of projects, within its available budget,  is a matter for each local authority

Traffic management issues are also a matter for the relevant local authority.
