Abnormal Loads

The movement of large or heavy loads (abnormal loads) on the road is covered by the Road Vehicles (Authorisation of Special Types) (General) Order, 2003, and Regulation 81/82 of The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986.

Please note, we do not normally acknowledge receipt of movement notices, although if there is a problem with the route, you will be contacted.

Who do I contact at Island Roads regarding an abnormal load movement?

For further information, or to notify of a proposed movement, please call 01983 828500 or email  giving full details of the route and load.
