Emergency works - Means work that requires an immediate response to restore the integrity of the utility or secure the situation for the safety of the community. This generally relates to:
- restoration of supply following an unplanned outage, or interruption of supply, to a community;
- rectification of a dangerous situation including support requested by an emergency service; or
- unplanned events that have a significant impact on a road, a bridge, public health, public safety or the security of supply to a network.
Major works - Work in, on, along, over, across or under the road that is deemed ’major’ by the Corridor Manager. Generally this will apply to works that fit any of the following situations:

- a traffic lane needing to be closed on an Arterial Road;
- a road closed for more than 2 minutes;
- metered parking or other restricted parking areas may be affected;
- work affecting a road structure such as a bridge, tunnel, or retaining wall;
- work needing to be done outside normal hours of work.
Minor works - Means work in, on, along, over, across or under the road, that has lower impacts than that for major works.

If Council is unaware of crashes that have happened in the district, we can’t carry out any necessary remedial works (repairing signage etc) straight away. You can help us identify potentially dangerous spots on our roads by completing a Traffic Crash Report if you are involved in or witness a crash.
Please note: Due to the nationwide COVID-19 lock down, applications or other submissions received via these forms cannot be processed until the lock down ends. For more information about council's response to COVID-19, click here.
