Restricted Access and Overdimensional Vehicles Clearance Certificate

Within The Coorong District Council there are Federal, State , Local Government and private roads that are traversed everyday by a wide variety of vehicles. There are state regulations that apply to vehicles that don't fit the category of general Access Heavy Vehicles and these vehicles such as cranes, B-Doubles, Low Loaders require a permit to do so. 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.

There is a 2 step process in order to obtain approval to access roads within the Coorong District Council area for these types of vehicles.

The first step for persons/businesses is to apply to Council through an application for clearance certificate for restricted access/overdimensional vehicles which will be assessed for approval.

The second step after clearance approval from Council is to forwarded the Council clearance to The Department of planning, Transport & Infrastructure (DPTI) for assessment in order to obtain approval and 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.
