National code of practice

The National Code of Practice for Utility Operators' Access to Transport Corridors (PDF 2.8MB) defines the set of standards for working in the road and the Corridor Access Request (CAR) processes. The Code is mandatory under the Utilities Access Act 2010 and applies to all works carried out in the road corridor, whether the work is for or by a utility, local government, commercial organisation or private individual(s).
