Road opening and closing proposals

Response to COVID-19
Departmental staff are working remotely during this period, please forward any correspondence to LSGRoadsAct@sa.gov.au.

The closing of public roads and the opening of some public roads in South Australia are regulated by the Roads (Opening and Closing) Act 1991. The process is managed by the local council, while the Surveyor-General ensures the process complies with the Act.

Surveyor-General's Industry Guidelines (1.7 MB PDF) (procedures outlined in the guidelines are mandated for use from 1 July 2019).

A 28-day public consultation process happens where people who are affected by a road opening or closure can lodge an objection against the road being closed or make an application for easement rights.
