The road reserve is an area of land controlled by the Local Government Authority, set aside for essential services and transport infrastructure. The extent is typically from property boundary to property boundary. Council must approve all works undertaken within the road reserve to ensure the safety of all users and the protection of existing infrastructure.
A driveway is a vehicular crossing that provides safe and convenient access to a property within the road reserve.
An access crossover is part of the driveway at the kerb line which transitions from the edge of the sealed road (in rural areas) or kerb and channel to the property boundary (in built-up areas).
It is the property owner's responsibility to build, maintain and alter the driveway and crossover.
