Different roads in the Shire are funded and managed by different levels of government.
The NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), in partnership with local government, established an administrative framework for classifying the extensive network of roads within the Parkes Shire.
Roads within the Parkes Shire region are classified into four categories; National Roads, State Roads, Regional Roads and Local Roads.
These categories govern which roads are managed and financed by which government agency. However, Council does manage a certain portion of all of these networks within the Shire with funding support from the various government agencies.
