New accreditation program now open for applications
A reminder that the new accreditation program started on 1 February, replacing the current prequalification scheme. New traffic management companies will now need to apply for accreditation before they can tender for VicRoads work and current prequalified traffic management companies have 12 months to transition to accreditation.
Changes to how you apply for regional MoA permits
From 14 March, regional and metropolitan Memorandum of Authorisation (MoA) permit application processing will be centralised into one DoT Permits Team to manage all DoT related road works MoA permit applications across Victoria. Creating one centralised team will streamline processes and provide more consistent advice.
Updated MoA permit application processes and key contacts list are available on the VicRoads website to support industry and stakeholders with making this change.
