Before You Dig Australia

People standing around a jackhammer

is a free information-gathering service about what government or corporate infrastructure assets exist under a proposed construction site where digging is planned. These assets may include storm water drainage pipes, internet cables and gas pipes to name a few.

Waverley Council is pleased to partner with BYDA, by making our maps available to people lodging enquiries on the BYDA platform.

The purpose of the BYDA service is to prevent worker injury and reduce damage to the complex underground networks that provide essential services to millions of Australians every day. Through their partnership with utilities, local councils, government agencies and private enterprises, they share vital safety information to those looking to dig.

Licensed builders, owner-builders and large construction companies are responsible for damage caused to infrastructure assets. We highly recommend that you use this free and informative service before you dig!
