Temporary Road Closures – less than four weeks

  • Any road closure less than four weeks requires written authorisation from the Chief Executive Officer.
  • Requests should be made in writing to the City of Karratha administration office.
  • A minimum of two weeks advertising period is required prior to any road closure less than four weeks.

Temporary Road Closures – greater than four weeks

  • It is a legislative requirement that any road closure greater than four weeks is publically advertised in the local paper with a request for submission and any adjoining owners notified and given the same opportunity to offer feedback. After the submission period (minimum of one week) is closed the matter then needs to go to Council for their endorsement.
  • It is therefore required that a minimum of eight weeks’ notice is provided with the traffic management application prior to any road closure greater than four weeks in order for this process to be completed.
  • Once endorsed by Council, the applicant will be required to further advertise the road closure for a minimum of two weeks in the local paper, contact directly resident’s / business owners and display a variable message board.
