In New South Wales, the Civil Liability Act 2002 was enacted to provide a level of protection to road authorities, where it could be demonstrated that a regime of regular inspection of its road infrastructure was undertaken, documented and necessary repairs/maintenance were carried-out in accordance with a prioritised list of scheduled works. Under this Act Local Government has a duty of care to take precautions against risk of harm to all road users on its network.  

The objective of this short-course is to equip participants with an understanding of the Civil Liability Act 2002 and enhance their knowledge of the liability and risk that a Public Authority is exposed to, in the management of its infrastructure.  Using actual case studies, the course covers;

  • Legislative responsibilities with regard to the provision of infrastructure in road reserves 
  • Liability regarding engineering infrastructure within road reserves 
  • Managing risk (including latent risk) within road reserves 
  • Special non-feasance protection for road authorities.  

Who Should Attend

The program of this one-day course will be valuable to local government engineers as well as being suitable for all disciplines within local government and engineering consultancies.
