  • Any move requiring travel against the normal traffic direction
  • Any move requiring the removal/replacement of, or changes to roadside furniture.
A TMP needs to include; details of the route, load and travel plan, emergency contact information and highly detailed information about pinch points (examples include bridges, intersections and reduced lanes).
Additionally, photos (or screenshots of Google Street View) of identified pinch points will need to be supplied and comments detailing how travel through the pinch point will be managed. Identification of roadworks, required protection officers, QR escorts and high wires will also need to be submitted.
The process will apply to all applications lodged from Wednesday December 1, 2021. Any permits already issued will not be affected.
