Road Corridor Permit

We plan, provide and manage Queensland’s state-controlled road network. This includes managing the non-transport activities and structures that occur within the road corridors. Under the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994 and the Transport Infrastructure (State-controlled Roads) Regulation 2017, applicants wishing to undertake an activity, works or erect a structure within the road corridor must first apply for a Road Corridor Permit.

For more information on the Road Corridor Permit process, download the Road Corridor Permit information sheet.

Road Corridor Permit application form is available for download. Please send your completed application to the relevant road office.

If you are organising an event which affects roads in Queensland and requires approvals, please visit the Traffic Management at Special Events page. This is a step-by-step guide on the process for seeking approvals and preparing the necessary event management plan.

We understand the cost of traffic management can make staging small events difficult for community and sporting organisations. For more information about what the department is doing to assist with this, please visit the Event Traffic Marshal page.

For information on specific non-transport activities, see the following guidelines:

The Ancillary Works and Encroachments Notice 2019 outlines a number of items that do not require a road corridor permit, provided that they do not interfere with a state-controlled road or its operations.
