Removal of RAV Access Condition CA07

​Overview of Alternative Arrangements

As a result of complaints received from the transport industry and legal advice obtained by Main Roads, the Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) access condition CA07, requiring the transport operator to obtain a letter of support from the relevant local government, will be removed from all permits and orders.

An alternative arrangement has been developed in consultation with the WA Local Government Association (WALGA), the Ministerial Heavy Vehicle Advisory Panel and the State Solicitor’s Office, which will allow local governments to monitor RAV access on their roads and enter into discussions relating to road maintenance agreements with freight generators.

Please take the time to read through the following relevant documents:

These documents have been developed to enable us to exercise authority within the legal constraints of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012.

Prior to removing the CA07 condition and introducing the new Road Managers’ Guides, we sought feedback from Local Governments, the transport industry and freight generators.  The opportunity to provide feedback closed at at the end of December 2019, this feedback is currently being reviewed.
