Parts of the Victorian roads authority will be partnered with the private sector, the government has announced, in a move a union has called a “part-privatisation” that is a “betrayal” of workers and motorists.

Treasurer Tim Pallas said a number of VicRoads services would be “modernised” to use a joint venture model for registration, licensing and custom plates.

A scoping study found a “joint venture partnership” would be the best way to upgrade the authority’s IT system to “develop modern registration and licensing services”, the government said.

The government will maintain ownership and control of VicRoads.

Mr Pallas said every worker would keep their job, and could either stay employed by the government or move to the private sector.
