Heavy Vehicle Information

​​This page contains information for heavy vehicle operators, including:

  • HPMV routes currently approved by Council
  • Restrictions on routes used by heavy or overdimension vehicles, including stock transport
  • Council bridges that must not be crossed by heavy vehicles
  • Speed restrictions

As well as lists in PDF format, this information is also available as maps, using the links below. The maps are KMZ files which can be opened in Google Earth (a free download).

Approved HPMV routes

These are routes Council currently approves if they are included in an HPMV permit. You still need to apply for a permit, and permits still require the specific routes to be described. 

This list provides operators with a ready reference. If a required route is not on this list it will not necessarily be rejected, but would need more scrutiny before approval.

See here for a list of the approved HPMV routes and bridges which must not be crossed.
