Vehicles with high loads
If you’re transporting a load more than 4.6m high under overhead powerlines, you’ll need to apply for our written authorisation.
We’ll assess your load, your intended route and times of travel to make sure that your high load won’t contact overhead powerlines.
To apply for your permit:
- Download a Notification to Transport High Loads form (PDF 256.8 kb)
- Email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: you must have our written authorisation to travel before transporting a high load.
You can find more information in:
- Our Trucking Industry flyer (PDF 1.4 mb) for more information on transporting high loads
- The Electrical Safety Code of Practice 2020 - Working near overhead and underground powerlines (PDF) for information on how to meet your legal responsibilities to address any risks associated with working near powerlines.
