Step 3: Work Authority Permit (WAP)
Once the organisation is registered with Westlink Services Pty Ltd and individuals are M7 Site Ready and M7 inducted, organisations and individuals can apply to work in the M7 corridor by completing an online Work Authority Permit (WAP) in Permitted.
Work authority permits should be submitted a minimum five business days prior to any proposed works being carried out.
Depending on the nature of work, Westlink M7 may request a meeting or consult with relevant stakeholders, or seek further information about the works, before approval to work in the M7 corridor can be given.
Westlink M7 recommends contacting the M7 as early as practicable in the planning stages of contractor works, to ensure all requirements can be met and to minimise the potential for any delays.
Traffic Control and ROL
Companies or individuals carrying out work for entities other than the Westlink M7, must engage their own traffic control and obtain their own road occupancy licence (ROL), for work in the M7 motorway corridor.
Own Traffic control is also required for work on or next to the M7 Shared Path, for the safety of workers, pedestrians and cyclists.
All traffic control plans must be certified, before they can be submitted to the Westlink M7 for a Work Authority Permit approval.
Developer and Landowners
Developers and landowners working on projects and properties next to the Westlink M7 motorway, including the M7 Shared Path, may request information or ask for a technical review of the impact of proposed works, in advance of a development application.
Developers and landowners may need to consult with specialist advisors and should conduct their own investigations including Dial-Before-You-Dig.
