Excess mass and dimension conditions of operations
Vehicles operating under excess mass and/or excess dimension guidelines or permits can potentially damage the road infrastructure and effect the safety of other road users.
To reduce the risks associated with the use of these vehicles, conditions of operation may be imposed on their operation.
General conditions of operation are included in the excess mass and excess dimension guidelines and conditions of operation for specific operations are issued with excess mass permits and Letters of No Objection (LONO).
