Higher mass limits maps

On occasion, roads can be closed or have their access conditions changed. The following maps need to be used in conjunction with the traffic and travel information on the website to ensure you have the most up-to-date road access information.

Higher mass limit vehicles may operate in Queensland on the following routes:

  • Routes approved for higher mass limits as outlined in the higher mass limits maps.
  • Connecting 23 metre and 25 metre approved B-double and road train routes identified in the multi-combination routes in Queensland to a radial distance of 500 metres from the Queensland Major Highway System.

Queensland's higher mass limits maps do not illustrate the type of vehicle that applies to each route. Operators must ensure that the higher mass limits route is approved for their particular vehicle combination, for example, higher mass limits road trains can only operate on higher mass limits approved road train routes. Operators of multi-combination vehicles are able to confirm regulation mass routes by referring to the multi-combination routes in Queensland. Once the regulation mass route is confirmed for the particular vehicle, the route can then be determined as higher mass limits approved by checking whether the route is identified on the higher mass limits maps.

How to use the maps

The following maps identify routes throughout Queensland that are approved for higher mass limits.

Follow these steps:

  1. Use the links below to open either the North Queensland map or the South Queensland map and locate the section required. These maps are to be used as a guide for identifying individual section maps.
  2. Select the section map, then the individual maps (all maps have clickable areas for ease of use).
