Working on our roads
Working or excavating on Waipa's roads?
If you wish to carry out any new building work, building maintenance or excavation work which affects the road corridor you are required to submit a Corridor Access Request (C.A.R) by going to submitica.co.nz. Examples include putting up scaffolding on the verge to access a building, placing temporary structures on the verge, closing a footpath to build up to the boundary, digging holes to lay pipes or cables, building a new vehicle entrance.
A traffic management plan and C.A.R is required before work begins. Start by applying for the C.A.R on the Submitica website below. Your traffic management provider can help you with this if you are new to this process. A fee is payable for this service. Please contact council's Traffic Management Coordinator on 0800 924 723 for any C.A.R or Traffic management plan application enquires.
All work in the road corridor must be carried out in accordance with the New Zealand National Code of Practice for Utility Operators' Access to Transport Corridors and Waipa District Council's set of Local Conditions. The local conditions will be made available to applicants once a Corridor Access Request has been lodged.
The work owner is responsible for reinstating the road, verge and footpath surfaces to good condition and guaranteeing the completed reinstatement for 2 years following completion.
The Regional Infrastructure Technical Specification (RITS) is a document that sets out how to design and construct transportation, water supply, wastewater, stormwater and landscaping infrastructure in the participating councils’ areas
