In order to demonstrate root interaction, you will need to remove the entire (or section) of driveway crossover on our land as part of your driveway replacement .
Prior to commencing any work, you will need to gain approval from us under section 138 of the Roads Act, 1993 to remove the entire (or section) of driveway crossover on our land .
Once an approval is obtained and prior to any works commencing, arrange for our Arborist to inspect the exposed site by providing a minimum 10 working days’ written notice to contact us online prior to driveway removal.
