Fees and Charges

CORRIDOR ACCESS REQUESTS: Before undertaking work in the legal road you must make a Corridor Access Request (CAR) - (formerly a Road Opening Notice - RON) and receive a Works Access Permit (WAP) from the Council.

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.
