DS-6.7 Further Considerations


The following shall also be considered as part of the design process:

  1. DS-6.7.1 Trenchless Technology
  2. DS-6.7.2 Access Requirements
  3. DS-6.7.3 Easements
  4. DS-6.7.4 Rural and Rural-Residential Zones

DS-6.7.1   Trenchless Technology

Trenchless technology may be preferred or required for alignments passing through or under:

  1. Environmentally sensitive areas.
  2. Built-up or congested areas to minimise disruption and reinstatement.
  3. Railway and major road crossings.
  4. Significant vegetation.
  5. Vehicular crossings.

Refer to CS-13 Trenchless Technology for information on trenchless technology installation.

DS-6.7.2   Access Requirements

Where any assets are being created as part of a wastewater system that is to be maintained by Council, legal and practical access shall be provided for maintenance. Access shall be designed considering how the assets can be physically accessed by Council for operation and maintenance purposes including the types of plant that would be undertaking these activities.

Where assets are to be located through reserves or gullies and the like, minimum access requirements include a 4m wide (minimum) access width, containing a 3m wide access path, constructed to an all-weather standard and be able to carry an 8.2 tonne design axle load.

Where the access is for a pump station, the access shall also include a sealed surface.

Explanatory Note:
This would typically be for access to assets such as Pump Stations, pipe bridges or other isolated assets. However, Councils ability to gain physical access to any asset cannot be overlooked.

DS-6.7.3   Easements

Please refer to:

  1. DS-1.22 Easements
  2. DS-1.22.8 Easements: Stormwater and Wastewater

DS-6.7.4   Rural and Rural-Residential Zones

Refer to DS-6.3 Regional Council Requirements.
