Planned Disruptions - Road

This dataset contains the locations and details of planned disruptions in near real-time on roads managed by the Victorian Department of Transport and Planning (DTP). The data includes (where available) the location of the disruption, road name, type of works being undertaken, which travel direction it affects, what time of the day works will be undertaken, how many lanes may be affected, how long the delay may be and other supporting information.

In accordance with the Road Management Act, the DTP is the coordinating road authority for all the arterial roads and freeways that are not privately owned in Victoria. For any works on, or that may affect, the road network, the DTP must manage the disruption in order to protect the community and help people continue on their journey.

The data is captured in a consistent and timely manner by the Permits Team in the DTP. The data is validated prior to release and maintained over time as new information is received.

This dataset uses the GeoJSON format. For more information about the GeoJSON format, see the GeoJSON specification here:
