Local and state government — the Roads Alliance
What is the Roads Alliance?
The Roads Alliance is a partnership between the Queensland Government, represented by Transport and Main Roads, and local government, represented by the Local Government Association of Queensland, to deliver better roads sooner across Queensland.
Established in 2002, the Roads Alliance enables both spheres of government to jointly focus on the road management task and address wider transport issues affecting Queensland.
Under the Alliance, local governments and Department of Transport and Main Roads regional representatives voluntarily work together through Regional Road Groups.
There are currently 19 Regional Road Groups across Queensland.
These groups are responsible for managing the planning, design, construction and maintenance needs of the Local Roads of Regional Significance (LRRS) network.
The LRRS network is approximately 33,600 km in length, and is made up of lower-order state-controlled roads and higher-order local government-controlled roads that perform a similar function.
