Heavy vehicle permits
Some trucks or big vehicles like a campervan may need a permit, take a look to see if that will effect your journey.
If your vehicle is over the standard weight limit and you need a one-off or continuous operation permit you can apply for this using the NZTA overweight vehicle permit application form, which should be submitted directly to LA.OWPermits@beca.com
If your overweight permit is granted, it will be issued to you as soon as it is ready and you will be invoiced by Council at the end of the month. You can find the current permit fees on our Fees and Charges page.
To discuss the permitting process further, you can contact our bridge consultant by emailing LA.OWPermits@beca.com or phone 07 577 7971.
