Applying principles to other activity classes

The principles and conditions of property purchase for state highways set out below may be applied to other activities classes, e.g. public transport improvements (work category 531), walking and cycling improvements (work categories 451  and 452), where the Transport Agency has agreed that it will assist the funding for property purchased for land transport purposes.

 Property purchase for other activity classes will be funded under the same work category that will be applied to construction/ implementation of the project, e.g. work category 531 for public transport infrastructure projects. 


A range of exclusions applies to the activity class.

    The work category excludes:

    • property purchase costs of less than $500,000 – these are to be included in the project costs conducted under the appropriate work category phase, i.e. a separate Property phase is not required.
