The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) is the legislated body responsible for the control of traffic on all NSW roads but it delegates certain aspects of the control of our regional and local roads to Tamworth Regional Council.
Council also plays an important role in the management of road networks by providing traffic input and advice where necessary.
These guidelines and policies enable Council to exercise the traffic functions delegated to us by the RTA.
As part of the management of traffic on a local scale, a Local Traffic Committee (LTC) exists primarily as a technical review committee, which advises Council on some matters.
While the committee has no decision-making powers, any traffic related matters Council wishes to consider must first be referred to the LTC for their recommendation.
The committee is made up of representatives from Council, New South Wales Police, the RTA and the local State Member of Parliament.
