B double Routes

B Double routes in the MidNorth Coast are approved by Roads & Maritime Services (RMS). You can find maps and approved road lists here.

Restricted Access Vehicles are:

  • B-Doubles including 19m B-Doubles operating at full axel loads i.e. 55.5 tonnes
  • 23 metre B-Doubles
  • 25/26 metre B-Doubles
  • 4.5 metre High Vehicles
  • Road Trains

How RAV Routes are determined

Each council is responsible for deciding whether large freight vehicles are allowed to operate on their local roads. A determination of a RAV route involves:

  • An assessment of the proposed route for the specific vehicle
  • A community consultation process
  • RMS and Council approval

For more information and the map of the approved B Double routes, visit the RMS Restricted Access Vehicles web page.
