HVS Update 26-2021

Update to Convoy Provisions within the Oversize Operating Conditions

Please be advised that the convoy provisions in the following operating conditions have been updated:

As a result of this update, up to four (4) OSOM vehicles may travel in convoy on the following additional roads:

  • Munjina - Roy Hill Road, Newman
  • Marble Bar Road, between Munjina - Roy Hill Road and the turnoff for Roy Hill, Christmas Creek and Cloudbreak mine sites.

During recent HVS Industry Workshop and Information Sessions held across the State, industry requested Main Roads consider applications on a case-by-case basis to expand the permitted routes for these larger OSOM convoys, where the proposed route adjoins the approved section of Great Northern Highway.

In response to receiving a request for the above roads, Main Roads undertook risk assessments during a trial move under the direction of a Main Roads Traffic Escort Warden.

The revised operating conditions are now available on the Oversize Overmass (OSOM) page on our website.

For further information please contact the Heavy Vehicle Helpdesk on 138 486 or email hvs@mainroads.wa.gov.au
