Road opening and closing proposals

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.

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.

Making an objection or request for easement rights

When making an objection or requesting easement rights to a road opening or closure, the following points must be adhered to:

  • The objection or request for easement rights must be in writing including two copies:
    • a copy addressed to the applicable council (or the State Commission Assessment Panel (SCAP) where the road closure is associated with a SCAP development)
    • forward a courtesy copy to the Surveyor-General at LSGRoadsAct@sa.gov.au or GPO Box 1354, Adelaide SA 5001.
  • The objection or request for easement rights must state the name and address of the person making the objection.
  • Specify how the road opening or closure impacts upon the person making the objection.
  • Any objection must be received by the council and Surveyor-General within 28 days of the public notice being published in the Government Gazette (see the deadline for objections in the table below).

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