Chapter 6 establishes a framework under which the construction, maintenance or operation of a State-controlled road (SCR) can be carried out.
In relation to roads, the sections of the Act establish a regime under which roads of national and State significance can be effectively planned and efficiently managed and influence exerted over the total road network (including local government roads) to contribute to overall transport efficiency.
The Act also provides for adequate levels of safety to be maintained and sets out the requirements for road franchise agreements and road works contracts.
Many activities on or near a SCR require a Road Corridor Permit (RCP). These activities, known as ancillary works and encroachments (AWEs) are set out in Schedule 6 of the TIA.
Activities in the road corridor which do not require a RCP such as temporary grazing, rubbish bin collection and some community fundraising activities, are set out in the Ancillary Works and Encroachments Notice (No. 1) 2009 which was published in the Queensland Government Gazette No. 70 on 20 March 2009.
Information on obtaining a RCP is set out on the Road Corridor Permit web page.
