Travelling on Local Roads

If you are seeking to travel on any local road, you must contact the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) via email www.nhvr.gov.au or telephone 1300 696 487. 

Under Heavy Vehicle National Law, the NHVR must then secure council approval for heavy vehicle travel on local government roads before an access permit can be issued.

Council is happy to provide advice regarding routes though the City of Greater Dandenong to heavy vehicle operators prior to submitting applications to the NHVR.   If you would like advice regarding travel for heavy vehicles through the City of Greater Dandenong, please contact Council.
