The Road Reserve, is defined as " The area from the property boundary on one side of the road to the property boundary on the other side of the road". This includes the berm (grass verge), footpath and carriageway (Road). At no time is it permitted to use this area for storage.
The road corridor is any urban street or rural road (including Paper Roads), from boundary to boundary, encompassing road and footpath formation and berm.
Storage on Road Reserve
Storage of stock feed or logs etc. on road reserve is a significant safety hazard. It restricts clear vision and obstructs pedestrians from walking safely off the road, cyclists and riders are unable to move to the side and this causes further risk to passing vehicles as they move out into oncoming traffic to go around them. Tractors moving the hay or logs in winter cause considerable damage to the road drainage as well as dumping clods of earth and other debris across the road, creating hazards for traffic.
