About the Event
The Roads and Transport Directorate, in collaboration with Local Government NSW, holds an annual Local Roads Congress, where local council mayors, councillors and executives gather to discuss road-related policy issues. The purpose of the Congress is to address policy issues rather than technical issues and to optimise roads and transport outcomes. The first NSW Local Roads Congress was held in December 2005 and has been held annually since then.
