Vehicle Crossings

A vehicle crossing is the pavement structure which extends from the edge of the road carriageway to the front boundary of the individual property concerned. It is normally positioned to connect with the likes of a residential driveway, a farm race, or a rural gateway into a paddock.
 
Since the crossing exists solely to serve the individual property rather than the wider community, the responsibility for its installation and maintenance falls with the landowner.  However, since the vehicle crossing lies within the road reserve, it must be constructed to Council’s standards.
 
Before you dig in the road, the vehicle crossing is also part of the Corridor Access Request (CAR). Please refer to Road Corridor Access how to apply. 
 
The following FAQ's and Guidelines contain Councils current standards for the installation of vehicle crossings
