Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) maps and lists

The RAV Maps and Lists page provides the enforceable network for all RAV operating at General Mass Limits (GML) and Concessional Mass Limits (CML) in NSW shown as either a map and/or a list.

The legal instrument granting access to the maps and or lists on this page can be found on the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) website.

Since 2 February 2015 the New South Wales Restricted Access Vehicle Enforceable Networks Schedule Amendment (Notice) 2015 (No.1) replaces the NSW Schedule in the following Notices:

Concessional Mass Limits (CML)

Heavy vehicles operating at Concessional Mass Limits (CML) can access the approved GML networks provided they comply with Schedule 2 CML in the Heavy Vehicle (Mass, Dimension and Loading) National Regulation and meet the relevant GML access conditions.

What is a RAV?

Any vehicle which exceeds the overall dimensions of vehicles as defined in the Heavy Vehicle National Law (NSW) is considered to be a restricted access vehicle. The Law defines the width, height, length and some internal dimensions of vehicles. See restricted access heavy vehicles for more information.

What is the interactive RAV map?

The interactive RAV map provides an active depiction of the location of road network restrictions and approved routes for use by heavy vehicles. Restrictions and approved routes are shown by heavy vehicle types and map layers can be switched on and off as required, allowing you the option of customising your view.

Using the interactive RAV maps

The interactive RAV map offers pan/zoom, different map views, location search and access to local street images.

Routes and zones approved for travel are enabled or switched off by selecting the vehicle type using the radio buttons in the legend menu on the left hand side. Information about a particular route e.g. Travel Restrictions, is accessed by clicking on the route, which will launch an information box which provides detailed information.

By using the zoom and drag features included you are able to view and print maps at the level of detail and covering the area you need.

The search function allows you to centre the map on a geographic location based on an address, town, post code, or a set of coordinates.
