- Road works such as gas, watermain, sewer or electrical connections
- Concrete pour or major deliveries where safety is an issue
- Standing a crane or similar equipment to lift goods or fix building walls
- Rail line maintenance
- Driveway construction which closes off part of the footpath to pedestrian traffic
- Construction adjoining a Council road reserve
- Enclosing part of the footpath to repair an awning or building façade (using removable fence or witches hats for short term work - less than one month duration).
Read Standard conditions for close road / lane for construction purposes
The application form should be submitted at least 5 days before the permit is required, or 20 days prior to commencement of works for a complex construction traffic management plan.
