You will need your local council to assess any temporary road / lane closures of council-controlled roads, lanes or parking bays.
You may need to temporarily close a road or lane if your business activity impacts the operation of the road network or traffic flow. Examples of activities requiring assessment include:
- road maintenance, such as resurfacing or line-marking
- lane closures around a building site
- moving cranes or other equipment in or out of a building site
- placing a barricade on the road
- grass cutting along the median strip, requiring the road shoulder or a lane to be closed
- lane closure to trim trees
- hanging a banner over the road
- festivals, events, markets and filming that affect the road network.
Once your activity has been assessed, you can apply for a road closure permit from the Queensland Police.
