RMS (Roads and Maritime Services) is a government agency in Australia responsible for the development and management of the road network and maritime services in the state of New South Wales (NSW). The agency was formed in 2011 through the merger of the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) and the NSW Maritime Authority.
RMS manages more than 18,000 km of roads and highways in NSW, including major motorways, and regional and local roads. The agency is responsible for planning, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining these road networks. This includes managing traffic flow, improving safety, and providing services such as rest areas, service centers, and truck stops.
RMS is also responsible for the safety and regulation of maritime services in NSW, including the registration and licensing of boats and vessels, and the enforcement of safety regulations on the waterways.
Additionally, RMS works closely with local councils, communities, and other stakeholders to develop and implement sustainable and integrated transport solutions. The agency also provides information and advice to the public on road safety, driving regulations, and other transport-related matters.
