Access and Transport Charges

Access and transport charges including corridor access fees, paper road closures and vehicle crossing inspection fees.

Submit your application through the "beforeUdig" website to check for locations of any underground services. This is a web based service that you or your contractor use to get plans and information emailed out to you.

This also provides the mechanism for you to make a Corridor Access Request, and provides us with a Traffic Management Plan to protect your site, contractors, and the public during operations.

There are other events or activities in the road that don't require a CAR and WAP, but still require a Traffic Management Plan.

Project works, major works, and minor works are as defined by the national code of practice for utility operators' access to transport corridors [November 2011].

The council may, at its discretion, allow for multiple sites to be included in a single CAR application with a single fee being charged. Applicants shall, if they consider there is a case to combine multiple sites, provide the council with the justification for a combined application fee.

Possible examples where a single fee may be considered are as follows:

  • repetitive works of a minor nature requiring minimal or no excavation works;
  • minor works on multiple sites [maximum of 4-5 minor streets];
  • main contractor managing multiple works but located on a single site.

  • The council may at its discretion allow for multiple sites to be included in a single CAR application with a single fee being charged. Applicants shall, if they consider there is a case to combine multiple sites, provide the council with the justification for a combined application fee.
  • Possible examples where a single fee may be considered are as follows:

               - minor works on multiple sites (maximum of 4-5 minor streets)

               - main contractor managing multiple works but located on a single site.
