Restricted Access and Overdimensional Vehicles

Restricted Access and Overdimensional Vehicles Clearance Certificate

 

Within Tatiara District District Council there are Federal, State, Local Government and private roads that are traversed everyday by a wide range of vehicles.

 

There are state regulations that apply to vehicles that do not fall in the class of general Access Heavy Vehicles such as cranes, B-Doubles, Low Loaders and they require a permit to access the roads owned and managed by the local authority.

 

There are also roads that have been gazetted throughout the state that allow a certain type of vehicle such as a B-Double, controlled access bus to traverse them that don't require a permit.

 

Those restricted vehicle owners (persons/businesses – the Applicant) should follow a simple two-step process in order to obtain permit to access roads within Tatiara District Council area. The steps are as follows:

 

  • Step 1 :  The Applicant should apply to the Council through an application for the Clearance Certificate for restricted access/over-dimensional vehicles which will be assessed for approval.
  • Step 2 :  The Applicant should forward the Clearance Certificate issued by the Council to The Department of planning, Transport & Infrastructure (DPTI) for assessment in order to obtain a permit.

 

The overall aim of both State and Local Governments is to provide a safer road environment for all road users, efficient operation of vehicles and the free flow of traffic without imposing undue wear and tear on the road system or damaging infrastructure.

 

Tatiara District Council aims to assist the applicants as efficiently as possible to apply for a permit. For all other information and the Clearance Certificate application form please contact:
