Heavy Vehicles

The Road Rules 2014 state that a vehicle with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) greater than 4.5 tonnes or a vehicle longer than 7.5 metres cannot be parked in a built up area for longer than one hour.

Council Officers patrol streets, as well as respond to complaints regarding heavy and long vehicles. Infringement notices will apply and this may also be followed up with legal action.

Council encourages the use of transport depots for the parking of heavy vehicles. This benefits operators as security is increased.

Limited alternate parking is also available around certain areas in Liverpool. Please contact Council’s Traffic Section for an updated list of these areas on 1300 36 2170.
