Access and Transport Charges

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

How corridor access fees are determined

- 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.
