2017 NSW Local Roads Congress - Making Our Roads Work

2017 NSW Local Roads Congress 

- Making Our Roads Work

Again this year the Roads & Transport Directorate and Local Government NSW are hosting the Local Roads Congress and Congress Dinner at Parliament House Sydney.

The problems facing Local Government in the Roads and Transport portfolio will not be solved by individual Councils alone. Nor will they be solved by local self-analysis.
They will only be solved through discussion, education, advocacy and ongoing and sustained lobbying by many within Local Government banding together and speaking with one voice.

The NSW Roads Congress provides a forum for Mayors, Councillors, Administrators, Interim General Managers, General Managers and Senior Engineering staff to have access to Ministers and Senior State Government staff to discuss the issues.

It is a once a year opportunity to meet together under a local government banner to push for additional road funding. It is also a great opportunity to catch up with the latest developments and issues in roads and transport.

Parliamentary Secretary, Frieght, Strategy and Planning, Mr Kevin Anderson MP
on behalf of the Hon Melinda Pavey MP

Chief Risk Officer, StateCover Mututal, David Ginpil
