Heavy Vehicles

Oversize and Overmass Vehicles / Loads

NT Legislation specifies maximum dimensional and mass limits for vehicles which may travel on public roads in the Northern Territory.


These limits are necessary to enhance the free flow of traffic to control damage of the infrastructure and to promote the safety of all road users.


The NT Legislation does recognise the possibility that sound reason may exist for allowing vehicles and loads that exceed these limits to operate on all or part of the road system by permitting exemptions to be granted.
