A vehicle crossing is the section of driveway that connects the front of the property boundary to the roadway and includes any crossing constructed over a footpath.
Although the road reserve is owned by the Council it is possible to widen, extend or install a new vehicle crossing but at the property owner’s expense. Written approval from Council must be given before any physical work can start.
To apply for permission to advertise on a road reserve visit the Roading Application Forms page.
Two inspections may be required for vehicle crossings
This is to check that all of the vehicle crossing specifications have been adhered to such as proximity to other services and properties, depth, width of crossing etc. Contact us to arrange a time for this when the concrete boxing is up, and at least 48 hours before the concrete is poured.
We will carry out a final inspection when the work is complete, and all Council assets are in place, such as the water meter, footpath repairs and the berm. Contact Council on 0800 801 350 to arrange a time for this.
