Council Crossovers

Request Your Free Home Visit & Quote

While most people aren’t aware of what a crossover is, everyone has one on their property. A council crossover refers to the part of your driveway that "crosses" from your property boundary to a council-controlled road. Exposed Aggregate Concrete Colours enhance the aesthetic appeal of this essential feature, blending functionality with design.

In Melbourne, Australia, if you want to construct or alter a Driveway Crossover, you are required to apply to the local council for permission.  The property owners are responsible for building and construction, maintenance, alterations and repairing driveway crossovers. The responsibility of the property owner includes not just where the driveway crosses the kerb, footpaths, water courses, drains or easements as well.

Adding a well-constructed and aesthetically pleasing council crossover will make your house the talking point of the street! At Concrete by Bayleaf, we are passionate and committed to going above and beyond for our clients and delivering the highest-quality product.

"Anton showed great attention to detail and delivered on time and on budget. I would recommend him to anyone who needs quality work done.”


“We spent many years looking at our driveway and wondering what we wanted to do with it. When we met Anton, we were sold by his clear passion for concrete and ideas and creativity for our outdoor living areas. Many years later, we stand back and marvel at the work of him and his team. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.”


“Anton and his team did an amazing job concreting our very old garage in a commercial premise. Their prep work was amazing, thorough and efficient and the end result, superb. He took care to be as unobtrusive to business as possible and went the extra mile with finishing off details. Great business. Highly recommend.”


"Anton constructed a crossing outside our home, the work was completed on time and the finish was of a high quality. Care was taken not to damage the surrounding pavement and his team integrated with the landscaper well. I would not hesitate to contract Anton again if had another concreting job."


“We messed Anton around with schedules and no problem. He did a great job concreting our new bathroom floor. Would recommend Anton highly.”


"Anton got the job done quickly and with no fuss to deliver a fantastic result. Very happy and would not hesitate to recommend them!"


"Brilliant job prompt with great communication! Happy and would use him again!"


"Anton Bialylew and his team from Concrete by Bayleaf have done a fantastic job to provide a new car parking area and driveway under challenging circumstances. Anton's team are highly experienced, professional and we have no hesitation to recommend Concrete by Bayleaf for future commercial work."

NICK MAVRODOGLOS, Director. hockingstuart Commercial

"Concrete by Bayleaf did a great job on our driveway. Helped fix a ongoing problem with our gate. On time, on price and very professional. Highly recommend them"


"I think it was Anton’s eye for detail and ability too explain step by step what was involved in the entire process from excavation to concrete pouring and finishing, that made us go with him. He communicated very clearly each stage of work and executed the work not only at an excellent standard but on time as well. Great Job!"


"I have known Anton for many years now, and I have always been impressed with both his attitude to getting things done, and also his meticulous eye for detail. He is an honest hard working young man, which I think is harder to find these days in the building industry."


From the moment we met with Anton on site we knew we were in good hands. His friendliness, care and attentiveness of our needs was already a standout from the other concrete people who had come to quote. The work he and his team executed was first class and I would strongly recommend him for any future works."


"Brilliant job prompt with great communication! Happy and would use him again!"


"Can't speak highly enough about these guys!
