All work on the road reserve, road closures and traffic or parking restrictions must be approved by the Christchurch City Council prior to the work or closure.
The Council is responsible to facilitate the coordination of works on the road corridor to ensure everyone who digs up the road uses a ‘dig once’ approach.
If you are planning to carry out any work or activity that affects the normal operation of the road, footpath or berm, you must submit a Corridor Access Request (CAR) before you start.
A vehicle crossing is the section of driveway from the front of the property boundary to the roadway. It is possible to widen or relocate your vehicle crossing.
The Council charges lease fees for the temporary use of legal road, such as when containers/ skips/ fences/ hoardings need to occupy public roads and footpaths.
Controls on the weight and axle loads of vehicles protect the road network. If your vehicle exceeds load limits, you need to apply for an overweight permit.
To drive an overdimension vehicle or load on the road network, you need an overdimension permit.
