Notes

  1. Minor works are works that involve excavations in the grass berm or footpath (property boundary to kerbline) and have a duration of 28 days or less from establishment to final reinstatement.
  2. Major works are works that require the carrying out of excavations in the road carriageway (kerbline to kerbline) and have a duration of 28 days or less from establishment to final reinstatement.
  3. Project works are (minor or major) works that have a duration of greater than 28 days from establishment to final reinstatement.
  4. A major project is a project which has a duration of greater than 90 days from establishment to final reinstatement or has the potential to cause major traffic impacts on the network. The Corridor Manager may choose to issue WAPs for separable portions of the works which each have a duration of less than 90 days, however, the project itself will still be deemed to be a major project.
  5. Utility operators must give the Corridor Manager preliminary notification of project works using the form contained in Schedule A1 of the National Code of Practice for Utility Operators’ Access to Transport Corridors. At this time the Corridor Manager will advise whether the works are considered to be a major project.
  6. It is expected that the Corridor Manager and utility operator will discuss and agree the cost for processing CAR applications for major projects prior to the lodgement of the CAR application.
  7. A CAR application must be lodged within 48 hours of the commencement of emergency works if the work would have required the lodgement of a CAR application had it been planned.
  8. The fee for the processing of CAR applications for emergency works is the same as that for planned works.
  9. A works completion inspection will be undertaken in all cases where there is excavation works carried out in either the footpath or the road carriageway.
  10. Failure to notify the completion of works within 10 working days of completion will attract an additional fee.
  11. If additional inspections are required due to a non-conformance being identified then these will be charged at the specified amount.
  12. The placement of mobile cranes within traffic lanes on Level 2 and Level 2L roads between the hours of 9am and 4pm (Monday to Friday) will only be permitted if it can be demonstrated that no other practical option exists.
  13. If utility operators are working together at a work site then the Corridor Manager may agree to the lodgement of a single CAR application covering their activities.
  14. The Corridor Manager will exercise judgement in respect to the application of the non-compliance charges and may waive or apply these charges as they see fit.
  15. All charges will be billed monthly to the respective utility operator with the exception of the occupancy charges relating to temporary occupation permits which will be billed quarterly to the applicant.
  16. All charges shall be paid by the 20th of the month following the month of invoicing. Any concerns relating to the charges shall be advised to the Corridor Manager within 10 working days of receipt of the invoice.
  17. Requests to extend the window of work or duration of work for an approved CAR will incur an additional extension of WAP fee (see Maintenance, renewal, and improvement of utility structures).
