The Roads and Transport Directorate is a joint initiative between IPWEA NSW and Local Government NSW to optimise roads and transport outcomes. The Directorate acts as a focus for research activities, provides technical advice to assist member councils and makes submissions on behalf of its members.

The first NSW Local Roads Congress was held in December 2005 and has been held annually since then.  The purpose of the Congress is aimed at Mayors / Councillors / Directors of Engineering and is intended to address policy issues rather than technical issues.
