Crossovers

A crossover is the section of a driveway that crosses over the verge, from the edge of the property boundary to the edge of the road.

The City requires prior approval for all crossover works prior to construction. If you are planning to install a new crossover, please make sure you follow the key requirements provided in the Crossover Specifications and Guidelines (see useful documents below). 

The City will contribute toward the cost of the first concrete or brick-paved crossover or the replacement of an existing bitumen crossover to the property, provided it is constructed in accordance with the City’s requirements. 

Crossover permit application

Once you have fully read the guidelines, you can apply for a crossover installation permit via the residential or non-residential application forms:

Non-Residential Application 

Crossover subsidy

Owners who are carrying out first-time crossover installations may be eligible for a subsidy. Applicants must advise the City on their crossover application form, that they will apply for a subsidy.

Once the works have been completed, please complete a crossover subsidy application form.

Please note, you must apply for a crossover subsidy within six months of the crossover completion.
