Council Crossover Drains

Construction of Vehicle Crossovers and Driveways

Driveways can be a funny thing, as a means for vehicles to enter your property, a driveway usually extends from the kerb to the edge of your carport or garage. The “crossover” is the portion of the driveway from the property boundary to the road’s edge. Your driveway, but on council land. Consequently, depending on local or even state legislation, approvals may be required to construct a new driveway, or perform any works on the verge.

Driveways require careful consideration for a number of reasons, legislative and logistical. The location may be impacted by services on the verge such as power poles or service access pits, and their final location can impact street parking and even traffic flow! And, then there are the neighbours to consider…
