Crossovers to driveways – subsidy request
The City of Stirling will contribute toward the cost of the first concrete or brick paved crossover to a property provided it is constructed in accordance with the City's specifications.
If a bitumen crossover is already in place the City of Stirling can replace it in concrete at a subsidised price. Extra crossovers may be provided at full cost to the ratepayer.
|Commercial (Heavy Duty)
It is important to obtain read the Specifications for residential and commercial/industrial vehicle crossings (PDF) before construction commences. The specification gives technical requirements such as maximum and minimum widths, approved materials and shape. If coloured concrete is desired, the property owner must arrange this separately with the Contractor for an additional cost.
There is usually a 3-4 week waiting period between payment for and construction of crossovers.
Concrete and brick paved crossovers may be constructed privately, but must conform to City of Stirling specifications before we will contribute to the cost. It is important that all crossovers conform to Council specifications in order to avoid problems such as pavement run-off entering private property and brick paved crossovers failing due to the use of inadequate materials. It is also important that all crossovers are built so as to allow for the provision of a future footpath.
Please direct all enquires, applications and requests for copies of specifications to the City of Stirling Customer Contact Centre.
Upgrading your crossover?
If you wish to upgrade your crossover to one in concrete, the City of Stirling will arrange a subsidised obligation free quote. Please contact the City of Stirling Customer Contact Centre to find out more.
