Our route assessment application process includes initially contacting the relevant road manager on your behalf to obtain their support for your application and then conducting an onsite assessment of the road in accordance with our guidelines and route assessment form below.
In assessing applications for RAV access, we will ensure that the road is suitable for the requested RAV access, as per the relevant Route Assessment Guidelines and decisions are made in accordance with the Guidelines for Approving RAV Access (PDF).
When a road is found suitable, it is added to the applicable RAV network(s) and both the applicant and road manager will be notified, including identifying any access conditions applied (if required).
If a road is found unsuitable for the requested RAV network, we will advise both the applicant and road manager, including providing a summary of the road deficiencies and/or reasoning for the decision.
Applying for a Road
To apply for a road(s) to be added a particular RAV network you need to complete and submit the application form below.
We are committed to finalising all route assessment applications within three months of receipt. However, assessments and approvals may be delayed for a variety of reasons, and we will maintain regular contact with stakeholders to inform them of the progress.
Furthermore, at times when there is an increased demand for RAV route assessments to be conducted, applicants and road managers may engage the services of an engineering consultant or transport consultant capable of conducting onsite route assessments.
Where a suitable consultant has been engaged to complete the onsite assessment, these applications will then be given priority in being reviewed.
