Trucks, heavy vehicles and freight

Freight vehicles are encouraged to use strategic routes designed for their extra loading. 

Trucks and heavy vehicles on local roads

We've only approved a small number of roads as freight corridors, as we want to minimise their impact. Designated truck routes usually have constructed pavements to handle their extra lodaing.

If you think trucks may be damaging a section of road, please call Customer Service by calling 03 8470 8888 or emailing mailbox@darebin.vic.gov.au.

Freight

While freight is important for Darebin businesses, it can also impact negatively on residents. We encourage freight to use strategic routes that are designed to carry such vehicles. This will give access to businesses without reducing resident amenity.

If you're concerned about truck parking, loading zones or trucks in residential streets, please call Customer Service by calling 03 8470 8888 or emailing mailbox@darebin.vic.gov.au.

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Scheme

The heavy vehicle industry recently went through change with the introduction of national regulations. During this transition period please email truck permits or questions to truck.permits@darebin.vic.gov.au.
