A crossover is the driveway access from the kerb or edge of the road to the front boundary of the property.
A constructed crossover prevents erosion and hazards for motorists, such as gravel washing onto the road and blocking the drainage system. Although a crossover is located within the road reserve, it is the responsibility of the property owner to construct and maintain it.
Under legislation all landowners within the Shire of Irwin must make an application to Council to construct a vehicle crossover.
Written approval from the Shire of Irwin must be obtained prior to construction of all crossovers including new, replacement or additional crossover.
