Road Access Permits Portal

The Department of Transport and Planning (DTP) is making it easier for the traffic management and construction industries to work with us by introducing the Road Access Permits Portal (RAPP).

What is the RAPP?

The RAPP is a new online permit self-service portal that has been created to allow traffic management companies to lodge Memorandum of Authorisation (MoA) and Consent for Working Within the Road Reserve (WWRR) permit applications and pay processing fees.

DTP has introduced the RAPP and updated permit application processes so companies can apply, monitor and receive authorised applications to carry out traffic management activities quicker and more easily.

From 17 October 2022, MoA and Consent for WWRR permit applications are to be submitted through RAPP.

RAPP replaces the previous manual application processes and has been designed to make applying for MoA and WWRR permits simpler and more streamlined. It includes a personalised dashboard so you can see the applications you have submitted and the status, manage your account details and make secure payments.

The application process for the following permits has not changed. Please continue to submit applications through the email addresses indicated below:

  • Permits for the following Big Build projects- West Gate Tunnel, Metro Tunnel, NELP and, Melbourne Airport Rail, please email [email protected]

What's new?

Changes from 9 December

Change 1: new column in the submitted dashboard view will show the ‘submitted on’ date for both MoA and WWRR permit applications.  Applicants will be able to calculate the number of business days an application has been in review from the submitted date.

Change 2: RAPP users with a traffic controller account type will have access to view authorised documents in the approval document folder. This change will ensure traffic controllers have access to a digital copy of relevant documents required to implement an MoA permit. 

Reminder: Documents being uploaded to RAPP need to be less than 20 MB. Please make sure you split up any large files if needed and advise your Traffic Guidance Scheme (TGS) designers.
