Traffic Committee

To help slow the spread of the coronavirus, Council is taking a number of public health precautions including closing many of our facilities. In addition, many Council events and activities are cancelled. Please visit our COVID-19 page to see what is impacted and for more details about how coronavirus is impacting Randwick City.

Randwick Traffic Committee

The Randwick Traffic Committee is a committee of Randwick City Council set up under a delegation from NSW Roads and Maritime Services*, to deal with traffic matters on local roads. Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is the NSW State Government agency which took over the roles of the former Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA).

A condition of the delegation from RMS 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 Roads and Maritime Services website. 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.

Minutes of recent Traffic Committee Meetings

*Roads and Maritime Services has joined with Transport for NSW

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.


The four permanent members of the Traffic Committee are representatives from:

  • NSW Police
  • Roads and Maritime Services
  • Local State Member of Parliament for the location of the particular agenda items
  • Randwick City Council.


Only permanent members have a vote on Traffic Committee recommendations and each vote has equal weight. Decisions of the Traffic Committee implemented by the Council may require a report to a Council meeting and a resolution by the Council.


Only permanent members have the right to appeal a decision.

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

If the Police or RMS disagrees with any of the Traffic Committee recommendations, or with the Council's resolution on any Traffic Committee recommendation, they may lodge an appeal with the Sydney Regional Traffic Committee for determination.  The Sydney Regional Traffic Committee is chaired by an independent chairperson and submissions and representations are welcomed.

Appeals by Traffic Committee members must be lodged, in writing, within 14 days of them receiving notification of the Council's decision on a recommendation. Action on an issue under appeal must stop until the appeal is determined.
