To gain permission to carry high loads around the United Energy network, you must apply to the NHVR (National Heavy Vehicle Regulator) and one of these steps is gaining approval from the distributor whose network you intend to travel through.
Our officers can either travel with the load, disconnecting and dropping the power lines as needed, or we can provide you with a map of the safest route to take the load. Fees are given on application as a survey of routes and additional escorts may be required.
United Energy must approve transport of loads greater than 4.6 metres within our network. Any load over 4600mm in height needs permission to travel on Victorian roads as they are classed as an ‘over dimensional vehicle’.
