The Road Traffic Act (1961) provides the legal basis for the operation of all heavy transport on South Australian Roads. When a vehicle or load exceeds mass (weight) or dimension (length, height, width) limits, then a permit is required to give that vehicle special permission to travel along certain roads. Permits therefore are legal documents that exempt certain types of heavy vehicles and/or loads to travel on specific roads at specific times.
Over-Dimensional - where either the load and/or the vehicle combination itself exceeds a length of 19.0 metres and/or a width of 2.5 metres and/or a height of 4.3 metres
Excess Mass - when the statutory mass limits (legal weight carrying capability) are exceeded on any axle or axle group and/or the Gross Vehicle/Combination Mass exceeds 42.5 tonnes.
