About VicRoads

On 1 July 2019, VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria came together with the Department of Transport (DoT) to create a properly integrated transport department – in step with other global cities.

On 1 January 2023, DoT was renamed the Department of Transport and Planning.

We don’t plan or operate our road, tram, or rail systems separately – we run a transport network.

The new Department of Transport and Planning gives us a singular, integrated focus on tackling the big issues – from improving buses in growing suburbs to making it easier to walk and cycle places and embrace new technology. 


Effective 1 January 2020, all road management functions and responsibilities of the Roads Corporation (VicRoads) are transferred to and vested in the Head, Transport for Victoria (established under s64A of the Transport Integration Act 2010).

As a result, a reference to the Roads Corporation or VicRoads in the road management standards, manuals, guidelines, codes of practice, technical notes, drawings, specifications and other technical information and documentation available for download must be construed as a reference to Head, Transport for Victoria -

(a) so far as the reference relates to any period on or after 1 January 2020; and
(b) if not inconsistent with the subject matter.
