Civil works inspections

Inspections are required to monitor the progress of the operational works and for bond releases and reductions.

A pre-start inspection can be booked once a bond agreement is finalised and payment has been made.

After your pre-start inspection, you will need to submit a Pavement design assessment form(PDF, 182KB). The assessment doesn't need an onsite inspection.

Inspection stage Approximate duration
Pre-start 1.5 hours
Pavement design assessment Offsite assessment
Practical completion (On-maintenance) 2.5 hours
Final defects (Off-maintenance) 2.5 hours

Additional inspections that are required by our Engineering Compliance Officer are:

  • earthworks and subgrade replacement
  • stormwater pipes – prior to backfill
  • pre-pour of concrete structures
  • water and sewer – prior to backfill
  • service conduits and road crossings
  • thrust anchor blocks
  • sub grade
  • pre-seal
  • footpath pre-pour, kerb pad inspection, A/C placement
  • bio basins and wetlands – refer to Water by Design
  • temporary road closures
  • retaining walls
  • IECA
  • uncompleted works bond inspections for early plan sealing.

These inspections are informally arranged with our officer directly.

Bio basins require a pre-start, on and off maintenance inspection. These are scheduled via the Engineering Compliance officer. All civil inspections will be aligned with landscaping inspections for bio basins.
