Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) Maps
The Restricted Access Vehicle (RAV) maps provide details on the roads and zones approved for B-doubles, road trains and 4.6 metre high vehicles.
The maps cover both Sydney and NSW in detail and include a set of travel restrictions which may apply to a specific RAV route.
The RAV maps are an accurate depiction of the roads that have been approved and legally gazetted for the operation of RAV vehicles at the time of publication. Roads and Maritime Services updates the maps on a quarterly basis and transport operators are encouraged to check-back for updates.
