Queensland Government Heavy Vehicle Rest Areas

The Queensland Government is committed to helping Heavy Vehicle drivers make more informed travel decisions. National reforms to combat heavy vehicle driver fatigue are in effect on Queensland roads. These laws are about making the roads safer and fairer, not just for heavy vehicle drivers, but for all road users.

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 link above; conditions of operation for specific operations are issued with excess mass and dimension permits.

It is the vehicle operator's responsibility to ensure compliance with current conditions of operation.
To ensure operators meet the responsibility, a Conditions of Operation Database for the state-controlled road network has been developed for public use. To access the Condition of Operation Database, click the link at the top of the page
