Travelling with high loads

Moving high loads around our network

A High Load Application form must be filled out for loads over 4.3m in height. Some loads will need to be escorted, and outages may be required. Hence, you must submit your application at least 15 working days before the moving date to allow enough time to assess your application. Once the application is processed, a permit will be issued with any specific conditions you must comply with.
