Manager Traffic and Road Network Performance
With a rich history and exciting future, Main Roads Western Australia is the WA State Government agency responsible for managing the State's highways and main roads. As an organisation, our challenge is to deliver integrated and intelligent transport systems and services to provide safer roads and better journeys for our customer.
Our Strategic Areas of Focus
Our commitment to delivering safe, reliable and sustainable transport services to the community is at the core of everything we do.
The strategic areas of focus in Keeping WA Moving guide delivery of our services:
- Movement: Improve mobility of people and the efficiency of freight
- Customers: Provide a transport network centred on what our customers need and value
- Safety: Provide improved safety outcomes for all users of the transport network
- Sustainability: Develop a sustainable transport network that meets social, economic and environmental needs
In response to the growing concern around congestion, Main Roads Western Australia created the Network Operations Directorate. The Network Operations Directorate’s key role is to optimise the performance of the existing road network to facilitate the movement of people and freight safely, reliably and efficiently throughout Western Australia.
The Network Operations Directorate is based at the Road Network Operations Centre (RNOC) in Perth’s CBD. The RNOC is a purpose-built, world-class facility designed to optimise road network safety, performance and congestion management. The new facility delivers a collaborative environment in order to improve the management of the road network through pervasive situational awareness and a common operating picture to ensure the safe and efficient movement of traffic under a framework that empowers the RNOC to make rapid, effective and data-supported decisions in a real time environment.
