Access Requirements in WA

Main Roads is responsible for determining and administering road access for Restricted Access Vehicles (RAV) in WA. 

Ensuring we deliver safe, sustainable and efficient RAV access, we work collaboratively with road managers to determine if roads are suitable for RAV access.

Many types of RAVs with differing performance characteristics, requiring different amounts of road space have different impacts on road infrastructure. 

With this in mind, a number of defined RAV road networks have been established, outlining where vehicles can travel based on a set of specifications.  

Your RAV networks are available via the RAV Mapping tool or in 'road table' format on the relevant Permit or Order page.

Visit the Specific Access Permits page, for more information about particular RAVs specific access.

For a road to be added or an alternative route be considered in the defined RAV networks; or you want to see a network upgraded, one of the following processes should be followed:



Approved roads (network tables), restricted structures and agricultural pilot zones are provided in one easy-to-use map.
