The Ryde Traffic Committee (RTC) is a technical advisory committee which is required to advise Council on matters referred to it. Council refers traffic related matters to the RTC prior to exercising its delegated functions. Matters relating to State roads or functions are referred directly to Transport for NSW (TfNSW), formerly known as RMS, and are not dealt with by Council.
The RTC considers the technical merits of proposals against current technical guidelines. Council is not bound by the advice of the Traffic Committee. Should Council recommend contrary to the Ryde Local Traffic Committee recommendation, then the matter is referred to the Regional Traffic Committee whose decision is binding on Council.
The membership of the Committee is limited to four formal members:
- One representative of Council (Chairman, Manager - Transport).
- One representative of the Police Service.
- One representative of TfNSW.
- The Local Member of Parliament or their nominee. Where more than one electorate covers the Local Government area, the Members of Parliament, or their nominee(s) are only entitled to vote on matters which affect their electorate.
Should a resident wish to address the RTC on a particular agenda item, the resident should make prior arrangements with Council staff to address the committee.
For more detailed information on any of the above download the RMS' A Guide to the Delegation to Councils for the Regulation of Traffic.
Meetings are held at North Ryde Office, Building 0, 3 Richardson Place, North Ryde Level 1 at 10.00am.
