Traffic Committee

Randwick Traffic Committee

The Randwick Traffic Committee is a committee of Randwick City Council set up under a delegation from Transport for NSW (TfNSW), to deal with traffic matters on local roads.

On 1 December 2019, Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and Transport for NSW (TfNSW) joined together to create one integrated TfNSW. All functions and responsibilities will now be performed by TfNSW and any references to Roads and Maritime Services are legally taken to mean TfNSW automatically.

A condition of the delegation from TfNSW is that the Council must take into account recommendations from the Traffic Committee.  For information about the powers and functions of Traffic Committees go to this link Randwick City Council welcomes members of the public wanting to attend and speak at Traffic Committee meetings.  For more information contact us.

The Traffic Committee generally meets at 9:30am, on the second Tuesday of each month (except for January when no meeting is arranged). Every attempt is made to prepare the Agenda and place it on this website one week prior to the meeting. Once finalised a link to the Agenda will appear below.

If the Local Member disagrees with any of the Traffic Committee recommendations, they may appeal to TfNSW or the Minister for Roads.
