Vehicle Crossings

A vehicle crossing is the section of driveway from the edge of road seal to the front of your property boundary.

A vehicle crossing can be required for a number of reasons, such as:

  1. If land is subdivided and the new property does not have a vehicle crossing,
  2. If an additional vehicle crossing is wanted for alternative access, or
  3. If an existing vehicle crossing is not wide enough an extension can be applied for.

Vehicle crossings are important to prevent any vehicle travelling over and damaging the kerb, channel and footpath in urban areas, or damaging and creating edge-break or potholes in rural areas.

Although vehicle crossings are in Council road reserve, they are required to be constructed at the property owners expense. Once constructed and out of their 1 year warranty period, Council will continue to maintain the vehicle crossing if any substantial damage is to occur.

The construction of the vehicle crossing in Council road reserve must only be done by an ADC approved contractor. This ensures that the work is being done by a contractor who is aware of ADC requirements and can identify and navigate the potential risks associated with working in the road corridor.

Before being able to construct a vehicle crossing, residents must apply to the Council using the Vehicle Crossing Application Form below.

Pipe Under Road

To install a pipe under a council owned road, an application must be made to obtain a permit from the Council Roading team. The pipe must be installed by an ADC approved contractor and all costs of installation must be borne by the resident applying for the permit.

It is important to understand that the Council will not be responsible for any damage to the pipe in the future from any cause whatsoever so the lifetime maintenance cost of the new pipe will be the resident's responsibility.

​​​​With many companies undertaking major piping works of their irrigation schemes, Council has developed a set of guidelines​​ to provide the requirements for installing pipes under the districts roads.​
