VicRoads is being partly privatised.

Neil Mitchell received a red hot tip about the news on Friday morning.

Staff have been told an agreement has been reached on a joint venture between the government and private company.

It will cover the registration and licensing side of the business.

The Australian Services Union represents workers at VicRoads and Victorian branch secretary Lisa Darmanin told Neil Mitchell she’d expressed concerns with government for about a year about the idea.

Neil Mitchell: “I thought this government was opposed to privatisation?”

Lisa Darmanin: “That’s what we thought, Neil… we are disappointed.”

Treasurer Tim Pallas confirmed the news a short time later, but distanced the government from the “privatisation” tag.

“This is not a privatisation in the sense that we are going to remain the owners of this asset,” he said.
